AV360 - Augmented Video 360


AV360 is a project supported by Google and developed at CSIG, INESC TEC's Center for Information Systems and Computer Graphics. This project aims at an augmented annotation and visualization tool, in order to bridge the gap between content creators and the technology required to add dynamic annotations to 360º video.

This tool will allow journalists and content producers to create immersive 360º news with dynamic annotations, narrative attention focus points, oriented 3D subtitles and off-the-shelf visual effects. Additionally the annotated video will be available online through a web player.

The purpose is to provide accessible tools for news professionals to have more control and at the same time freedom to edit and add relevant information to 360º videos.
