The MR AdMiRe project chooses the system specifications
AdMiRe, a project founded by European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme coordinated by Brainstorm Multimedia – whose goal is to develop, validate and demonstrate innovation solutions, based on Mixed Reality (MR) technology-, has decided the specifications of the system.
A few days ago, all partners had a technical meeting where they focused on the requirements gathered from their end users. After the meeting, AdMiRe had the basis for the technical specifications to the system. The requirements have emerged from the interviews held with end users. Three TV stations have given their opinion about what are the needs in order to successfully implement AdMiRe given the specific needs of their scenarios of their live TV programs. The interviews were transcribed and later on a list of requirements was generated.
At this meeting, AdMiRe members discussed every requirement with their technology partners and decided whether each of them will be included or not in the technical specifications list and which of the partners will take responsibility for implementing it. Some of the topics lead to insightful discussions. For example, issues related to silhouette extraction, multiple camera points of view, image resolution at different stages of the graphics pipeline, audio issues, network transfer rates, application usability, QoE of the audiovisual feedback to the user, data protection, virtual TV sets, color correction, etc.
In the next few days, AdMiRe will start defining the validation plan. The purpose of the Validation is to demonstrate the correct operation of the AdMiRe systems, as well as the correct implementation of their components. In parallel to the implementation of the AdMiRe solutions, all partners, led by NTNU, will formulate the validation methodology including the set of test-data to be provided by the end users.
These test data will be designed based on Assessment Indicators defined, including traceability information to demonstrate the completeness of the solutions. The report includes the way of reporting problems and further recommendations.
AdMiRe partners are Brainstorm, disguise, NTNU (Norges Teknisk-Naturvitenskapelige Universitet), EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne), Universitat Pomepu Fabra, NRK, Premier Sports and TVR.
