IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) invites you to participate in the working group for IEEE P2948 – Standard for Framework and Definitions for Cloud Gaming and IEEE P2949 – Recommended Practice for the Evaluation of Cloud Gaming User Experiences.



Cloud gaming is viewed as the new race track for the online gaming industry. The convergence of 5G and cloud computing technology will bring opportunities for disruptive changes and development in the gaming industry. By running games directly on the remote servers, cloud gaming can greatly reduce the hardware requirements and costs for users, providing users with free configuration and free download gaming experiences.

IEEE P2948 provides definitions and terminologies of the components of a cloud gaming system. The standard details the roles and functional modules of cloud gaming from both user and system points of view. The standard also defines and categorizes different genres of games that could have different technical requirements.

IEEE P2949 provides a comprehensive set of evaluation methods and models to provide a systematic and quantitative description of the end-to-end user experience for cloud gaming. This includes the evaluation of audio and video quality, stability and fluency of games, as well as interaction quality (such as user experience/user interface (UX/UI) design, and latency).
