This paper provides a systematic understanding of the requirements of live 3D mesh coding, targeting (tele-) immersive media streaming applications. We thoroughly benchmark in rate-distortion and runtime performance terms, four static 3D mesh coding solutions that are openly available. Apart from mesh geometry and connectivity, our analysis includes experiments for compressing vertex normals and attributes, something scarcely found in the literature. In addition, we provide a theoretical model of the tele-immersion pipeline that calculates its expected frame rate, as well as lower and upper bounds for its end-to-end latency. In order to obtain these measures, th...
