Omnidirectional MediA Format (OMAF) is arguably the first virtual reality (VR) system standard, recently developed by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG). OMAF defines a media format that enables omnidirectional media applications, focusing on 360° video, images, and audio, as well as the associated timed text, supporting three degrees of freedom (3DOF).
