2024 Accelerator Project

Evolution of the Control Room - Leveraging XR, Voice, AI & HTML-Based Graphics Solutions  

This Challenge combines two original Accelerator 2024 proposals into a transformative, overarching project exploring the evolution of live production workflows – with two key streams of development – the Evolution of the Control Room, leveraging XR, Voice, AI and HTML Based Graphic Solutions.

Champions: TUS/Transmixr, ITN, TV2, BBC, TV2, TUS, HSLU, University of Strathclyde, Trinity College Dublin  

Participants: Tinkerlist, Infuse Video, Nxt Edition 

Evolution of the Control Room, leveraging XR, Voice & AI: This new power-house consortium aims to optimise the workflow using XR technology and AI solutions, enabling production teams to realise their creative vision without advanced technical expertise. The POC will aim to showcase Democratize Media Production using Automation, Generative AI, Voice Commands, Distributed Studios and shared resources across regional and local hubs – using any device in any location to meet audience needs, with easier, faster, cheaper and more sustainable solutions.  

Champions: BBC, YLE, RTL, EBU, TV2, Channel 4  

Participants: Tinkerlist, Nxt Edition  

Multiplatform HTML Based Graphics Solutions workstream will explore the synergy between digital and traditional linear broadcast platforms is a must to achieve brand assurance and the optimal production flow and look to develop a modular graphics solution that supports multiplatform delivery, as well as real-time end-device rendering and playback. It aims to use industry-standard graphics and programming tools for graphics development along with common off-the-shelf web components for storage and visualisation – essential elements to achieve the desired modularity.
