XReco

XR MEDIA ECOSYSTEM

XReco will build an enabling technology and pave the way for lifting the use of XR media content from being occasionally involved in media production to being regularly integrated in the media industry. Media producers will be able to use data from third parties to deliver new integrated media formats.

20 partners from 12 countries combine their competences and visions to enable efficient media data sharing, discovery, recommendations, and transformations, involving different types and sizes of media organizations.

OBJECTIVES

While media organizations increasingly support non-linear experiences for the consumer, those are still limited to single channels and media domains. Although several media organizations have recently succeeded in breaking data silos, data sharing is mostly limited to the organization.

XReco will create a new data-driven ecosystem for the media industry, focusing on facilitating data sharing, search and discovery and supporting creation of news and entertainment content. The focus will be on the creation and (re-)use of location-related 2D and 3D assets and the creation of XR experiences.

The ecosystem’s core, represented by a Neural Media Repository (NMR), will foster inter-organisation content sharing and provide increased access to content for media creators, considering novel data monetization and rights management policies. A set of AI-based media transformation services are built around the NMR to produce novel media-and XR experiences, including 3D neural reconstructions, neural based device localisation, image stitching, de-/re-lighting and holoportation.

The developed technology will be validated in use case scenarios for the news media for XR-based broadcasting and automatic and customized multitarget news publishing, and for location-based information and entertainment content, with applications that also work in tourism and the automotive industry.

XReco will build an enabling technology and pave the way for lifting the use of XR media content from being occasionally involved in media production to being regularly integrated in the media industry.
