AIVIE - Augmented immersive-video-based interactive environments


The AIVIE-project introduces Augmented Immersive Video (AIV): a new medium based on the integration of immersive, omnidirectional video with 3D computer graphics. AIV entails a variety of potential applications, ranging from business, engineering & science to entertainment.

In this project three technological challenges are tackled:

  • integrating the 3D content with immersive video
  • optimizing transport
  • making interaction in AIVIE effective

The feasibility of practical applications will be demonstrated via a multitude of output configurations, ranging from ad hoc constructions to full 360-degree surround projection setups.



In this project MICT supports the user-centric design methods to identify the most promising applications. Meanwhile, we maintain a feedback loop between developers and target groups.

Duration of the project


The project runs from 01/01/2013 - 31/12/2014.
