WHAT WILL BE YOUR ROLE?

In the TNO MediaLab, we create innovative media technologies aimed at providing people with new and rich media experiences, which they can enjoy wherever, whenever and with whomever they want. To enable this, we mainly develop video streaming solutions, working from the capture side to the rendering side, looking at many of the aspects involved: coding, transport, synchronization, orchestration, digital rights management, service delivery, etc.. In many cases, we do this work directly for customers such as broadcasters and content distributors.

As part of this, we currently work on what we call Social VR, or VR conferencing. Virtual Reality applications excel in immersing the user into another reality. But past the wow-effect, users may feel the lack of the social interactions that would happen in real life. TNO is exploring ways to bring in the virtual world the experience of sharing moments of life with friends and family. We do this using advanced video-based solutions.

We are actively looking for students to contribute to:

  • The technical development of the platform (i.e. prototyping), e.g. working on spatial audio, 3D video, spatial orchestration, shared interaction in AR/VR, etc. Focus would be on analysis of available technology vs requirements for our platform, and then develop and properly test a new building block, or in general on platform improvements and optimizations. Main TNO location here is The Hague, New Babylon.

Focus of assignments is on the technical development of the platform, both back-end and front-end. Technical/computer science students are invited to respond. Also, multi-student assignments are possible, i.e. an overarching assignment where a number of students cooperate. If you are interested, we welcome you to talk to us with your ideas, and we can share our current most concrete topics of interest. The expected duration of these projects is 6-9 months including the writing of thesis and paper(s).
