The latest developments in research are often not directly applicable for the media and creative industries, since the prototypical implementations are often operated using special software and hardware environments that are not designed for common platforms. In contrast, usage of web technology is basically a standard in the media and creative industries.
The Institute of Visual Computing is developing a research prototype from the area of Augmented Reality which will be used to continuously test and optimize the transition process defined by the project partners.

The scalable research prototype which is being developed at the H-BRS can handle various aspects from the field of augmented reality.
This involves the following components:
- 3D point cloud reconstruction of a captured scene using structure-from-motion.
- A tracking system which uses reference information to find the position and orientation of a camera.
The results in form of source code, examples and documentation can be found here:
