The goal of xTV is to develop new interactive digital television experiences and production techniques, made possible by surround video (i.e. omni-directional, panoramic) in which one (the producer or the viewer) can look around.
The role of SMIT in this project is threefold:
(1) Conceptualization: To delineate the relevant concepts for surround video by consulting reports, scientific literature and experts on the matter
(2) Co-design: To involve end users and other stakeholders in the design process of omni-directional video applications
(3) Evaluation: Investigating the real-life value of television enabled by omni-directional video.
