We focus on ten societal areas.
TNO cooperates with companies, the public sector and other organisations, to apply our knowledge and expertise with and for others.
We develop knowledge not for its own sake, but for practical application.
TNO offers you the chance to do groundbreaking work and help customers and society with innovative, practical and smart solutions.
On TNO Insights you can read in-depth interviews and articles. Get inspired by TNO’s innovations!
We present our work at the renowned IBC Conference, with three papers:
1. With the uptake of VR, an emerging challenge is the creation of convincing multi-user social VR experiences. Social VR is a key research area for TNO and we have recently developed TogetherVR; this framework allows for creating social VR experiences in which users see each other while watching a video, playing a game or having a teleconference in VR. Senior Consultant Martin Prins will give a presentation on “Creating Social VR Experiences”; he will present the framework, share insights and discuss how web-technologies can be used to easily and rapidly test and evaluate multi-user VR experiences.
IBC Session: “VR and AR - the production, the potential and the pitfalls”. Friday, September 15, 11:30-13:00
2. The proliferation of new capabilities in affordable smart devices capable of capturing, processing and rendering audio-visual media content triggers a need for coordination and orchestration between these devices and their capabilities, and of the content flowing from and to such devices. The upcoming MPEG Media Orchestration standard (“MORE”, ISO/IEC 23001-13) enables the temporal and spatial orchestration of multiple media and metadata streams. In his presentation “Media Orchestration Between Streams and Devices via New MPEG Timed Metadata”, senior scientist Oskar van Deventer will update the audience on the status of the MORE standard.
IBC Session: “Novel ideas and cutting edge technologies”. Sunday, September 17, 10:15-11:45
3. Principal consultant Rob Koenen is involved in the IBC conference in various roles; as co-author of the joint paper “CDN Optimization For VR Streaming” with TNO spin-off Tiledmedia; as chairman for the conference session “VR and AR - the production, the potential and the pitfalls” already mentioned above, and, in his role as VR Industry Forum President, with a talk on VRIF activities at the IBC Future Reality Theatre. Monday, Sept 18, 15:25.
Together with our partners, we showcase our latest technological advances during the Exhibition:
TNO is coordinating the ITEA3 project ‘Media Orchestration from Sensor to Screen (MOS2S)’, where we collaborate with Dutch companies such as the Amsterdam ArenA, Bosch, Game On, Inmotio Object Tracking and KPN, as well as with Belgian partners Kiswe, Nokia and VRT, and Korean partners ETRI, Mooovr and Samsung. On our MOS2S booth at the IBC Future Zone, we demonstrate new technology which provides for an enriched experience for TV viewers and stadium visitors during live events, such as football matches and concerts. We showcase applications that make it possible for TV viewers and stadium visitors to receive additional information live during soccer games; both on the TV screen at home and on their smartphone or tablet. You can find TNO and the MOS2S project partners in Hall 8, stand G06. To know more, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Working with a significant number of VR Industry Forum (VRIF) members, TNO spinoff Tiledmedia will be demonstrating its highly optimised ClearVR tiled streaming solution for VR360 video distribution at IBC. Tiledmedia has also been selected to pitch at the IBC Startup Forum.
Tiledmedia’s ClearVR technology will be demonstrated at the following VRIF member booths:
