Guidelines & Reports

In order to share experiences on producing immersive content we will publish a number of project reports and also create guidelines for content creators on how to use the video compression tools for delivering and exhibiting immersive content. This will help to increase the adoption of state-of-the-art IT technologies by the media industry.

Guideline 1: Deep Space Development Kit
The Ars Electronica Deep Space 8K Unity Development Kit shall make it possible for developers all over the world to easily create Unity applications for the Deep Space 8K, a large-scale multiuser VR environment.
Guideline 2: Ambisonic Sound Production
This document contains a description of the practical recording and production of ambisonic sound based on the experience gained in the Immersify project.
Guideline 3: Dome and Interactive Content
This document aims to explain how interactive content can be created for a dome or 360° environment. The focus is especially on how to create multi-user interactive narratives within a shared space.
Guideline 4: Super Resolution Upscaling
Upscaling of digital images (or video frames) refers to increasing the resolution of the original images. In the context of this guide, we focus on methods based on artificial intelligence and give an introduction to the employment of Deep Learning technology for upscaling video.
Guideline 5: Laser Scanning
This document describes how to scan 3D images with laser scanners into a point cloud and briefly presents the available formats and software.
Guideline 6: 8K 2D/3D Filming
Publishing date: July 2020
