New technology to greatly improve video communication tested during dive to Titanic wreck

The COVID-19 pandemic has enormously boosted the popularity of video communication—but sometimes poor transmission quality, dropouts, and connection failures during meetings or conference calls tax the participants’ patience. Researchers at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) have developed a method for transmitting video conferences over very low bandwidth connections, enabling such transmissions even under extreme conditions. It was tested during a dive to the wreck of the Titanic, which lies at a depth of nearly 4,000 meters in the North Atlantic.
