Light Field Technology Delivers on Immersive Experiences but Needs Standards

Light field technology enables remarkable capabilities. Specifically, this includes allowing changes to be made in postproduction that would normally have required a complete re-shoot. Additionally, light field could open the door to enhanced, 360-degree virtual reality. The result is exciting new and immersive viewer experiences, along with considerable cost savings for professionals.

So, what’s holding us back from reaping the benefits? With so many vendors developing cameras, content and viewing devices, the need for industry standards is paramount. A roadmap for these standards was recently developed by JPEG and MPEG. This includes:

  • Interoperability of Tools
  • Coding
  • Point Cloud Compression
