Spin Digital will join a panel titled “Cinema VRE and the Future of Immersive Technologies” presented by Intel Corporation. At the NEXT conference room on Wednesday May 9th, at 2:00 pm.

In this panel latest trends Cinema VRE driven by immersive technologies will be highlighted. From the production of Dunkirk VRE, and Prelude to Le Musk VRE by A.R Rahman, by Intel; to the motion VR chairs, and ultra high-res video technologies (8K and beyond) driving the next generation immersive media experiences.

The panel will be presented and moderated by Ravindra Velhal from Intel Corporation (USA). Mauricio Alvarez-Mesa, CEO of Spin Digital, will introduce the vision of immersive technologies and content from the perspective of the Immersify European project.

About Immersify

Virtual Reality (VR) has what it takes to be the next big gamechanger in the media sector. In stark contrast to video, TV and the movies, VR applications promise experiences that are not only more intense but, above all, interactive and individual too. Be that as it may, a considerable amount of R&D work still needs to be done to haul VR out of the niches it’s been confined to and launch it on its way to a huge consumer market share.

That’s precisely the mission of Immersify, a European R&D consortium made up of the following partners: PSNC – Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center (Poland), Spin Digital Video Technologies GmbH (Germany), Ars Electronica Futurelab (Austria), Marché du Film – Festival de Cannes (France) and Visualization Center C (Sweden).

Immersify was set up in October 2017 and runs until March 2020. Funding is provided by the EU’s Horizon 2020.
