FascinatE Showcase: Future Broadcast Technology

Final Demonstration of the EU FP7 FascinatE Project

Thursday 30 May, 2013 | University of Salford, MediaCityUK

You are invited to an exclusive demonstration of future broadcast technology

This event has limited capacity, advance registration is required

FascinatE (Format-Agnostic SCript-based INterAcTive Experience) is a â‚¬9.35m EU funded research project to examine the technologies for producing and delivering ultra-high resolution panoramic content of live events, to offer the viewer a more interactive experience tailored to different devices, such as UHDTV and second screen.  

FascinatE has developed a full system to allow end-users to interactively view and navigate around an ultra-high resolution video panorama with accompanying audio changing to match the selected view. Interaction methods are tailored to the device, e.g. hand gestures for big devices and touch gestures for the smaller ones - come see it in action!

For this final demonstration we are pleased to announce that the event will feature the premiere performance of 'deeper than all roses', the latest large-scale music composition from Stephen Davismoon, featuring 'rock' band Bears?Bears! and live performance artists, in celebration of the works of the celebrated American poet E.E. Cummings.

To experience the streamed broadcast please select from one of the three performance times: 11:00, 12:45, 14:30. The performance and acquisition space will be open during all performances and offline demonstrators will be held throughout the day.

Seats are limited and access is granted by a first come first serve basis. Full details available at the registration site below.
