Project description

Yinz Cam involves large-scale wireless video streaming in an indoor venue, such as a hockey arena or a football stadium. The intent is to allow fans to experience interactive entertainment, select camera angles, receive data feeds, etc., on their mobile devices while inside the indoor venue, with the intention of enhancing their viewing experience of the game. The research issues underlying this project include streaming video over wifi to hundreds, if not thousands, of devices, being energy-sensitive to the viewing of video on mobile devices, supporting multiple different kinds of mobile devices, and ensuring end-to-end reliability for the delivery of the service to the mobile devices.
