It is popular to watch a 3D video through a 3D display nowadays. However, it is still difficult to enjoy the 3D multimedia contents with a mobile device even if a mobile device with a 3D display is currently introduced into the market. The main technological challenges for watching 3D contents via the mobile devices can be identified as the following: generating and streaming 3D contents. Generating 3D contents requires extra computational resources. Moreover, streaming 3D contents demands additional network bandwidth for receiving and transmitting the 3D data. To overcome these technological challenges, we propose ReMA, a novel 3D video streaming system in this paper. We devised a novel architecture for transmitter, receiver, and a distribution system to efficiently disseminate and generate 3D videos for the mobile devices. We implemented ReMA in a real test-bed and conducted a thorough empirical evaluation study to see the feasibility of streaming 3D contents for the mobile devices. Based on our empirical study, the resulting system presents a great promise in streaming 3D video in real-time to the mobile devices.
