To help address the 5G Phase 1 service requirements for Virtual Reality (VR), the 3GPP Codec and Media Working Group (SA4) has completed work on the support of 360° VR streaming services, within Release-15 of the specifications.

Virtual Reality is the ability to be present in a space created by the rendering of natural or synthetic image and sound. To facilitate that presence a set of VR Video and Audio operating points and their mapping to Dynamic and Adaptive HTTP Streaming (DASH) have now been specified in 3GPP specification TS 26.118.

The specification is based on the definition of TV video profiles in 3GPP Release 14, but adds the extensions needed to enable VR services over the large range of device types envisaged for the market.
