Final Demonstration Performance Open Invitation

Please join us for the final demonstration of the EU FP7 FascinatE Project, a €9.35m funded research project to examine the technologies for producing and delivering ultra-high resolution panoramic content to live events, to offer the viewer a more interactive experience, tailored to different devices.

Come for a behind-the-scenes experience in our Digital Performance Lab to see the technological infrastructure for the acquisition of a live performance: the premiere of 'deeper than all roses', the latest large-scale music composition by Professor Stephen Davismoon, featuring live dance artists and music from Bears?Bears! at 11:00 am, 12:45 pm or 14:30 pm.

Throughout the day, the FascinatE team will deliver technical demonstrations detailing the innovative components that have been developed, including:

  • 3D audio and video capture systems and scripting systems to control the shot framing options presented to the viewer;
  • Intelligent networks with processing components to repurpose content to suit different device types and framing selections;
  • User terminals supporting innovative interaction methods to allow viewers to control and display content.

With influential guests from the broadcast and creative industries, it's a great networking opportunity for researchers, academics and students from arts and science backgrounds.
