In this paper we propose a novel framework for the streaming of 3-D representations in the form of Multi- View Videos (MVV). The proposed streaming system is completely standards based, flexible and backwards compatible in order to support monoscopic streaming to legacy clients. We demonstrate compatibility of the proposed system with various possible encoding schemes and operating scenarios. In the current implementation, the MVVs in the server are compressed using a simplified form of MVC with negligible loss of compression efficiency and streamed using Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP), Session Description Protocol (SDP) and Real Time Protocol (RTP) to the clients. We describe our extensions to SDP and discuss a preliminary RTP payload format for MVC. The clients in this implementation perform basic error concealment to reduce the effects of packet losses and decode MVC in near-real-time. The modular clients can display decoded 3-D content on a multitude of 3-D display systems.
