Abstract
Traditional multimedia content is typically consumed via Audio?Visual (AV) devices like displays and speakers, and therefore we are limited to use just two of our five senses, namely sight and hearing, the other three (touch, smell and taste) being neglected. Recent advances in 3D video and spatial audio allow for a deeper immersion of the user into the digital AV content, and thus a better Quality of Experience (QoE) can be achieved. Additionally, the multitude of new sensors and paradigms to map the data they capture onto our five senses enable us to perceive even better the environment both locally and remotely. In the literature, the former is referred to as ?Augmented Reality (AR)?, and the latter as ?immersive experience?. Recognizing the need to represent, compress, and transmit this kind of contextual data captured by sensors, and that of synthesizing effects that comprehensively stimulate all human senses, the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG, formally ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 29/WG 11) ratified in 2011 the first version of the MPEG-V standard, officially known as ?ISO/IEC 23005?Media context and control?. MPEG-V provides the architecture and specifies the associated information representations to enable interoperable multimedia and multimodal communication within Virtual Worlds (VWs) and the real world, paving the way towards a ?metaverse? (a collective online shared space, created by the convergence of virtually enhanced reality and physically persistent virtual space, including the sum of all VWs, AR, and the Internet).
