AUGMENTED VIDEO 360


Go beyond 360º video using dynamic annotations, smart guides and immersive annotation editing

ABOUT


AV360 is a project supported by Google and developed at CSIG, INESC TEC's Center for Information Systems and Computer Graphics. This project aims at an augmented annotation and visualization tool, in order to bridge the gap between content creators and the technology required to add dynamic annotations to 360º video. This tool will allow journalists and content producers to create immersive 360º news with dynamic annotations, narrative attention focus points, oriented 3D subtitles and off-the-shelf visual effects. Additionally the annotated video will be available online through a web player. The purpose is to provide accessible tools for news professionals to have more control and at the same time freedom to edit and add relevant information to 360º videos.

VISUALIZER


On the Web Visualizer the content of the annotated video can be seen in a browser or VR headset, but outside the editor, making it useful for the media community.

EDITOR


The Editor enables the user to annotate a 360º video using a VR headset with input devices or hand tracking systems. These annotations can be made static over a certain object, or dynamic, following an object or moving from area to area. Annotation types include text, images and hyperlinks.
