5G to immersively and interactively experience events remotely
The project activities will focus on the realization of immersive content that, taking advantage of the high performance of 5G networks in terms of bandwidth and latency, will be broadcast from outdoor locations of music, educational, tourist-recreational (use-case) events.
To achieve the goal, the CNR Research Territorial Area Conference Center in Bologna will be upgraded, with the creation first of all of a control room that, interacting through 5G technology, will allow the production of usable content with emerging human-machine interfaces (e.g., augmented, virtual, immersive and interactive reality, speech recognition, etc.).
This infrastructure will be complemented by two dedicated laboratories:
- SED Space – Digital Event Room, will aim to develop experimental, immersive content based on augmented, virtual, immersive and interactive reality;
- 5G-TUR Lab, will aim to test the full usability and interactivity of augmented and virtual reality content, particularly aimed at the tourism-recreation sector.
This project is part of the broader goal of creating a unique infrastructure in Emilia-Romagna open to the territory and the community, useful for the exchange and sharing of ideas, technologies and opportunities.
Partners MISTER, National Research Council, Proambiente, Music Academy and Luciano Pavarotti Foundation are collaborating on the development of the project, with co-financing from the Ministry of Business and Made in Italy (5G audiovisual project).
