Jonathan Simsch and Jens Herder. SpiderFeedback - Visual feedback for Orientation in Virtual TV Studios, 11th International Conference on Advances in Computer Entertainment, ACE 2014, Funchal, Portugal, ACM, DOI=10.1145/2663806.2663830, November 11-14, 2014.
A visual and spatial feedback system for orientation in virtual sets of virtual TV studios was developed and evaluated. It is based on a green proxy object, which moves around in the acting space by way of four transparent wires. A separate unit controls four winches and is connected to an engine, which renders the virtual set. A new developed plugin registers a virtual objects position with the proxy object which imitates the virtual objects movement on stage. This will allow actors to establish important eye contact with a virtual object and feel more comfortable in a virtual set. Furthermore, interaction with the virtual object and its proxy can be realised through a markerless actor tracking system. Several possible scenarios for user application were recorded and presented to experts in the broadcast industry, who evaluated the potential of SpiderFeedback in interviews and by questionnaires.
