Partners presented technical demos of their progresses on 27th & 28th June at CWI in Amsterdam
The second General Assembly took place in two stages: On 22nd June, work package and task leaders provided updates on project advancement during an online session with all partners before meeting in person over 2 packed days engaging partners with technology demonstrations, presentations, business & exploitation sessions, requirements and design workshop sessions.
As always in good spirits, the 2 days GA, hosted by the amazing team of CWI, started with an overview of the project and the declared goals of the meeting, namely: (i) to showcase the outputs of the various TRANSMIXR taskforces via technical demonstrations of technology and presentations of findings since the Lisbon GA in February; (ii) initiate and have a brainstorming session on business and exploitation within TRANSMIXR; (iii) have a deep dive on progress on requirements definition to date (iv) plan next steps via a design workshop and further technical discussions.
While the meeting was a great success as a whole, a major highlight was how the TRANSMIXR team came together to produce 11 technical demos reflected by the new TRANSMIXR dashboard, generative AI, the TRANSMIXR control room, XR content curation, Social XR, Volumetric video on different platforms and holograms. This was a phenomenal achievement in only a few short months since our last face to face meeting. It reflects the commitment of the team and many thanks to them all. These demos greatly informed a highly interactive deep dive during the TRANSMIXR requirements session where the technical and use case teams, on a per use case basis, came together during highly fruitful discussions on the scope of the technologies TRANSMIXR will deliver. Underpinning all of these discussion was of course the business value-add these technologies bring to the news media & broadcasting, performance and cultural heritage industries.
Of course, the team continued to build its togetherness and enjoyed a nice social event. Special thanks to our wonderful hosts again, CWI and especially Jack, Ashutosh and Thomas for facilitating the demo session infrastructure and to Pablo who ensured we all felt very welcome in the lovely city of Amsterdam!
