An omnidirectional vision system is an imaging system that can capture a surrounding image in all directions by using a hyperbolic mirror and a conventional CCD camera. This paper proposes a streaming server that can efficiently transfer movies captured by an omnidirectional vision system over the Internet. The proposed system uses multiple channels to deliver multiple movies synchronously. Through this method, the system enables clients to view different directions of omnidirectional movies and also supports the function of changing the view area during the playback period. Evaluation experiments show that our proposed streaming server can effectively deliver multiple movies via multiple channels.
