A Masterclass in VR Technology and Industry

Sunday, September 16th
13:45 - 15:30

Rob Koenen, President of the world VR Industry Forum will be your guide on this tour through the standards, practices, experiences and experiments which define the current state of VR-360 and AR. Rob will present an overview of VR markets and will examine the progress made in the last 2 years by the VRIF and MPEG to define common standards. Discover how VR-360 images will be represented and transmitted, how capture and production will work, and what is known about avoiding adverse effects. Three world authorities will then explain and demonstrate advances on the near-horizon which will permit enhanced immersivity and more degrees of freedom: immersive audio, point cloud capture and light-field processing. This will be the most thorough opportunity, anywhere, to  update yourself on VR and AR - do not miss it!
