2022 Accelerator Media Innovation Programme

2022 Accelerator Media Innovation Projects 

Cloud Based Live Events, Analytics and Low Latency Protocols 

Proposed and pitched by Microsoft 

Aiming to demonstrate how professional live sports events, with multiple camera feeds, can be delivered at scale with full visibility, including live IP signal ingest, standards conversion as well as assessing the potential to introduce low latency protocols. 

Unified Cloud Architecture to Streamline the Localisation Process 

Proposed and Pitched by Fabric 

A project to explore fully decentralising the production and delivery of localised media, metadata and artwork, whilst centralising and streamlining ordering, management, and tracking from a single platform that delivers full visibility and accountability of the whole process. 

Next Generation News Studio 

Proposed and pitched by TV2, Denmark 

What will the next generation news studio look like? How will it combine all the new latest greatest technologies? Never had there been so many exiting technologies, that can be integrated in the news studio production, and so this exciting Accelerator project sets out to explore and define a futureproof concept for News studios. 

5G and the Arena of the Future for XR Events

Proposed and pitched by Vodafone, ESL & Hado 

Fresh off their 2021 Project of the Year victory, the winning combo of 5G and XR (Extended Realities) returns to further push 5G’s low latency and connectivity into the 3D arena-verse of the future via live Augmented Reality esports and multi-location, multi-player fan hyper-personalisation using immersive, real-time technologies. 

5G Remote Production … in the middle of nowhere

Proposed and pitched by the University of Strathclyde

Following on from work in the Accelerator programme over the last two years, this breakthrough project aims to demonstrate just how portable flexible a private 5G ‘network in a box’ can be for live broadcast production use cases, taking it to some truly remote global locations, as well as to the IBC show itself. 

6DOF Audio-Led Narrative and Music Experiences in the Metaverse

Proposed and pitched by Magic Beans

Creating first-person-perspective music and narrative experiences that audiences are free to move around and interact with. It aims to understand how 6DOF (six degrees of freedom) audio content in the metaverse will impact upon content creation and delivery.

RT3D Mixed Reality Pipelines for Live Studio Broadcast into Multi-Platforms

Proposed and pitched by RTÈ, Trinity College Dublin 

To build the live studio of the future and evolve the traditional broadcast pipeline to incorporate the latest content creation technologies such as volumetric, motion capture, live action and 3D render engine, ensuring efficient delivery of real-time content for multiple platforms including broadcast, live-streaming, the metaverse and interactive channels.
