A field of view about 180 degrees wide, 135 degrees high, 1 arc
minute in minimum pixel size, and updated 100 times per second?
twice, to account for full stereography, and using 48 bits of

180 * 135 * 60 * 60 * 100 * 48 = 419904000000,

420 billion bits per second.

Compress 100:1, we're still at 4.2Gb/s, plus some relatively
minor trivia for audio, osmic and haptic data.

Per simultaneous user, of course.
