Description

The VRTogether project aims to offer groundbreaking social Virtual Reality (VR) experiences among users located in remote domestic scenarios, based on photo-realistic immersive content, in a cost-effective manner. VRTogether’s consortium has been strategically set up to cover all stages of the production chain in a well-balanced way: a combination of leading research institutions (i2CAT, TNO, CWI, CERTH, Artanim) together with stakeholders (Entropy, Motion Spell, Viaccess-Orca) spread over 5 European countries.

Estimated impact

  • Develop and integrate new media formats to deliver high quality photorealistic content and create a strong feeling of co-presence in a coherently integrated experience.
  • Re-design the distribution chain so such innovative content format can be orchestrated and delivered in a scalable manner.
  • Develop appropriate Quality of Experience (QoE) metrics and evaluation methods to quantify the quality of these new social VR experiences.
  • Maximize the impact that VRTogether can have on content creators, producers, distributors, tooling companies, service providers and the general audience.
