SIGGRAPH 2017 Course on Video for VR

MARVEL member Dr Christian Richardt is co-organising a course at SIGGRAPH 2017 on Video for Virtual Reality.

Video can capture the dynamic appearance of the real world in a way no other technology does; virtual reality technology, on the other hand, enables the display of dynamic visual content with unparalleled realism and immersion. The fusion of these two technologies – video for virtual reality (VR) – promises to enable many exciting photo-realistic experiences.

Over half a day, this course provides an overview of three aspects of this exciting medium: the technical foundations, current systems in practice, and the potential for future systems of VR video.
