While media organizations increasingly support non-linear experiences for the consumer, those are still limited to single channels and media domains. Although several media organizations have recently succeeded in breaking data silos, data sharing is mostly limited to the organization. Thus, there are challenges for producing content feeding multiple channels with different granularities and structures, mainly related to data discovery, management and (re-) use.
XRECO will create a new data-driven ecosystem for the media industry, focusing on facilitating data sharing, search and discovery and supporting creation of news and entertainment content.
The ecosystem core, represented by a Neural Media Repository (NMR), will foster inter-organization content sharing and provide increased access to content for media creators, considering novel data monetization and rights management policies. A set of AI-based media transformation services are built around the NMR to produce novel media and XR experiences, including 3D neural reconstructions, neural based device localization, image stitching, de-/re-lighting and holoportation.
The developed technology will be validated in use case scenarios for:
- The news media for XR-based broadcasting and automatic and customized multitarget news publishing.
- Location-based information and entertainment content, with applications in tourism and the automotive industry.
Atos performs as T3.5 leader, being involved in the requirements, technical specifications & architecture, as well as in demonstration specifications (WP2) and finally in WP5 within the testing and validation of the platform.
