Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR STORAGE AND SIGNALING OF MEDIA SEGMENT SIZES AND PRIORITY RANKS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE STOCKAGE ET DE SIGNALISATION DE TAILLES DE SEGMENTS MULTIMÉDIAS ET DE RANGS DE PRIORITÉ
Abstract
(EN)
A method, apparatus and computer program product to signal and store various segment properties in omnidirectional media, including sizes, priority ranks, and the like. The method, apparatus and computer program product access one or more media segments (30). The one or more media segments includes media data configured for streaming playback. The method, apparatus and computer program product access size information (32) or priority rank information of one or more tiles for each of the one or more media segments. The method, apparatus and computer program product encode the size information (34) or priority rank information for each of the one or more media segments in a media file within one or more metadata tracks associated with the one or more media segments or one or more sub-segments associated with the one or more media segments.

L'invention concerne un procédé, un appareil et un produit programme d'ordinateur qui signalent et stockent diverses propriétés de segment dans des supports omnidirectionnels, y compris des tailles, des rangs de priorité et similaires. Le procédé, l'appareil et le produit programme d'ordinateur accèdent à au moins segment multimédia. L'au moins un segment multimédia comprend des données multimédias configurées pour une lecture en continu. Le procédé, l'appareil et le produit programme d'ordinateur accèdent à des informations de taille d'accès ou des informations de rang de priorité d'au moins un pavé pour chacun du ou des segments multimédias. Le procédé, l'appareil et le produit programme d'ordinateur codent les informations de taille ou les informations de rang de priorité de chaque segment de l'au moins un segment multimédia d'un fichier multimédia à l'intérieur d'une ou de plusieurs pistes de métadonnées associées à l'au moins un segment multimédia ou à l'au moins un sous-segment associé à l'au moins un segment multimédia.
