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 highdefinition 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 userǎs 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.
