Working Title: ‹‹ Mixed Reality Content - virtually a done deal? ››
New technologies and innovative applications are expanding the ways that we create and deliver audio/visual content to the consumer. The classical ‘production chain’ techniques, involving studio-centric recording and processing with delivery via physical playout centres, are being replaced by new generation ‘virtual studio/production sets’ and software code development platforms. Now, scanned ‘volumetric’ image files, computer-generated scenes and virtual objects can be combined seamlessly and remotely in the Cloud. Content creators can use both virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) technologies to create imaginative mixed reality (MR) experiences. Physical and virtual objects are made to exist and interact together in real-time, and the viewer is immersed in a shared 360ïÂÂ° audio-video ‘MR’ world, with new modes of personal interaction using touch, gesture, gaze and even brainwaves. Content creators can collaborate using website and cloud-based services like GitHub, to develop, store and manage their multi-viewer MR productions.
This event will provide an overview of state-of-the-art mixed reality and immersive display experiences, and will investigate the opportunities in the marketplace for new applications using the latest software tools and devices. There will be presentations from all the major UK broadcasters. Following the talks, delegates will be invited to take part in hands-on demonstrations of some of the commercially-available technologies and open-source software packages, with workshop sessions led by industry experts to discuss technicalities and future developments in this area.
