ImmersiaTV

Immersive Experiences around TV, an integrated toolset for the production and distribution of immersive and interactive content across devices

ImmersiaTV project will create a novel form of broadcast omnidirectional video content production and delivery that offers end-users a coherent audiovisual experience across head mounted displays, second screens and the traditional TV set, instead of having their attention divided across them. This novel kind of content will seamlessly integrate with and further augment traditional TV and second display consumer habits.  ImmersiaTV will assemble an end-to-end toolset covering the entire audiovisual value chain: immersive production tools, support for omnidirectional cameras, including ultra-high definition and high dynamic range images, and adaptive content coding and delivery, and demonstrate it through 3 pilot demonstrations addressing both on-demand and live content delivery.

The partners of the ImmersiaTV project are a combination of leading academic institutions together with industry actors. From the research side, EPFL, iMINDS, i2CAT and PSNC have all the knowledge and capabilities to ensure the demanding specifications and requirements of omnidirectional video streams. This includes emerging codecs and cutting-edge research stitching, coding and transmitting methods. In addition, close contacts with standardization organizations, such as JPEG, will make sure the solution implemented is aligned with these emerging standards. In terms of tooling for content production and content format ideation, research institutions will work hand in hand with the SME members of the consortium specialized in IT solutions for multimedia production, Video-Stitch, Lighybox, Cinegy and VRT to make sure the solution offered is appropriate and matches the industrial state-of-the-art and everyday professional know-how.
