With the spread of high-definition video devices, and with the advance of digital broadcasting systems and video portal services in the Internet domains, numerous high-definition video presentations become available in everyday life. Under these circumstances, the desire of people to enjoy video contents in new ways had grown. This paper proposes a new multivision video provisioning system that enables numerous users to access any view area with any desired resolution interactively. The basic idea is that the partial area (tile)-based pre-coded video streams are stored in advance. These multiple streams are joined dynamically and delivered based on the user's view-area position. In this paper, the details of H.264/AVC tile-based video coding and a fast tile stream joiner scheme are presented. Simulation experiments and our practical implementation demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of our proposal.
