Production and mediation of immersive media

Where can traditional media go under the influence of immersive technologies? What changes in the audience's needs for experience can provide the impetus for this? These questions are to be clarified within the project.


Project information

Formation of an EU-wide network dedicated, among other things, to clarifying the questions:

  • How do so-called immersive media create a media-specific experience that does not simply try to reproduce the experiential qualities of traditional media, but instead translates the specific possibilities of innovative technologies into novel experiential qualities?
  • Which educational measures (audience development, media-aesthetic education, experiential communication) can be used to develop qualified reception, appreciation and appropriation of different and new media forms among a broader audience?
  • Online symposium and Corona-compliant studio visits in Dieburg.
  • Lectures, discussion rounds, each on named issues; studio reports, exchange on technologies used in each case and procurement projects.
  • Development of common questions in order to jointly submit EU applications, among other things.

Diversification of the questions mentioned at the beginning due to a diverse group of
participants in terms of content and technology.

It is expected that, based on the output, a basis can be formulated on how new forms of media can be sustainably anchored in society.

Output can be expected depending on suitable EU R&D tenders.
