The traffic of multi-view video is several times larger than traditional multimedia, which brings much more increment in the bandwidth requirement. To overcome this problem, Simulcast and MVC (Multi-view Video Coding) can be used to decrease the traffic for multi-view video. However, although Simulcast removes redundant information within each view, it still contains a large amount of inter-view redundant information. MVC further removes the correlation between the views, but all the views should be encoded and transmitted. So the bit-rates are still too high in these schemes. The authors have already proposed a system with the basic conception.
