Funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation program, the INVICTUS project aims at delivering innovative authoring tools for the creation of a new generation of high-fidelity avatars (numerical representations of real humans) and the integration of these avatars in interactive and non-interactive narratives (movies, games, AR+VR immersive productions).
Commenting on the announcement, Rafa Pagés, Volograms CEO, said: “At Volograms, we believe that volumetric video will shape the way we communicate in the future, disrupting media in every sense. The INVICTUS project will help to take the realism of volumetric models to a whole new level and will help creators work with this exciting technology through new authoring tools. We are very excited to be part of this amazing consortium that includes industry leaders and first-level research institutions”.
