VisualMedia project organised intensive four-day training at Brainstorm Multimedia in Madrid, Spain, 22–25 May 2017.
During the training, the technical partners demonstrated how to set up, install, calibrate, and use the VisualMedia system. The users had walk-throughs of each and every system engines – social media, graphics, online distribution, tracking, and gesture recognition. All users had ample time to learn to use the system, and ask details from the technical partners. Similarly, the technical partners had their first feedback session from the end users. Overall, the feedback was very positive and encouraging, and the end users suggested many improvements.
After this training, the user partners will install the VisualMedia system to their broadcasting sites. They will begin using the system with their own test scenarios. Next feedback session is planned for the end of June.
VisualMedia project, led by Brainstorm Multimedia, is about integrating social media, innovative 3D graphics, and new interaction systems in the broadcasting industry.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under grant agreement No 687800.
