Virtualization of live events
The Virtual LiVe project aims to digitize physical event formats through the use of new immersive media formats (e.g. 3D audio, 360° video, light fields, volumetric video). Virtual LiVe explores how today's solutions can be extended through high-quality virtual presence with immersive content to create new formats for virtual and hybrid cultural events as well as platforms for conventions and trade shows. Fraunhofer FOKUS, Fraunhofer HHI and Fraunhofer IIS are working together to find applicable high-end solutions for the event streaming needs of various players from different industries.
The project is funded as part of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft's SME acute program “Research for SMEs”.
