i2CAT develops an accessibility-enabled player for 360º video


The player, developed in the framework of the H2020 ImAc project, enables the consumption of 360º video and spatial audio, augmented with a hyper-personalized presentation of access services (subtitles, audio description and sign language interpreting).

ImAc (Immersive Accessibility) aims at guaranteeing accessibility in immersive multimedia services, including 360º video, spatial audio and Virtual Reality (VR) content. This will allow to provide an adequate narrative, a greater and better access to information and usability, regardless the sensory and cognitive abilities of the users, their age, language, as well as any other possible handicaps.
