The main objective of PROMETHEUS is to research and develop the next generation video streaming infrastructure which

  • shall enable the efficient and optimized adaptive streaming of bandwidth-hungry interactive video applications – including but not limited to augmented reality, virtual reality, and omnidirectional 360° video – within heterogeneous environments;
  • shall support immersive media applications taking into account recent advances in media coding (i.e., high-dynamic range, white color gamut, and other range extensions) as well as proprietary formats depending on the market needs (e.g., AV1, VP9, VP10, etc.);
  • shall provide means to quantify the Quality of Experience (QoE) of the above mentioned applications domains in order to analyze and improve the video quality on the Web.
