Advanced Media with Chris Eller, Matt Mercer, and Tassie Gniady.

Abstract:

IU has a broad history of working with a variety of media and methods of interaction. In this session, you'll learn about two cutting-edge technologies: 360 and stereoscopic media. New 360 images and videos are available on your mobile phones and in virtual reality devices on a daily basis. While capturing and processing stereoscopic media is certainly not a new concept, the accessibility of stereoscopic 3D cameras and playback mechanisms has brought new attention to this form of expression. You'll also learn about the challenges and opportunities afforded by these forms of advanced media and learn how to create richer experiences.


Who should attend?

Are you involved with the humanities or creative activities at IU? This informational series will show you all the services UITS has to offer, from 3D object acquisition to virtual reality for education and research. The series is presented by a host of experts from the UITS Advanced Visualization Lab and Cyberinfrastructure for Digital Humanities & Creative Activities group as well as guest lecturers.

The format of the weekly series at IU Bloomington includes introductions to topics, hands-on expeditions, and lectures by people doing cutting-edge work at IU.

The seminar series is hosted by Tassie Gniady, manager, Cyberinfrastructure for Digital Humanities & Creative Activities, Research Technologies - a division of University Information Technology Services and a center in the Pervasive Technology Institute at Indiana University.

The Supercomputing for Everyone Series (S4ES) aims to bring more users into the realm of advanced computing, whether it be visualization, computation, analytics, storage, or any related discipline.
