Findings from M. Zorrilla and Co-Researchers in the Area of Multimedia Reported (HTML5-based system for interoperable 3D digital home applications)

August 5, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- Fresh data on Multimedia are presented in a new report. According to news reporting originating from Donostia San Sebastian, Spain, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Digital home application market shifts just about every month. This means risk for developers struggling to adapt their applications to several platforms and marketplaces while changing how people experience and use their TVs, smartphones and tablets."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research, "New ubiquitous and context-aware experiences through interactive 3D applications on these devices engage users to interact with virtual applications with complex 3D scenes. Interactive 3D applications are boosted by emerging standards such as HTML5 and WebGL removing limitations, and transforming the Web into a real application framework to tackle interoperability over the heterogeneous digital home platforms. Developers can apply their knowledge of web-based solutions to design digital home applications, removing learning curve barriers related to platform-specific APIs. However, constraints to render complex 3D environments are still present especially in home media devices. This paper provides a state-of-the-art survey of current capabilities and limitations of the digital home devices and describes a latency-driven system design based on hybrid remote and local rendering architecture, enhancing the interactive experience of 3D graphics on these thin devices."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "It supports interactive navigation of high complexity 3D scenes while provides an interoperable solution that can be deployed over the wide digital home device landscape."
