ibcIn parallel to ICoSOLE‘s final field trial at Leffingeleuren Festival (Belgium) the project’s results were demonstrated at this year’s IBC in Amsterdam. At our project partners’ booths three main aspects of the ICoSOLE system capabilities were shown.

Live Control & Editing

Tools on Air demonstrated live control and editing of the multipanoramic camera system installed at Leffingeleuren festival.



The output of the mixing engine was sent to the Bitmovin encoder in the cloud, and also shown on Bitmovin’s booth.


Multipanoramic Cameras

AZilPix (a spin-off from iMinds) had a very prominent spot on the booth of their partner Axon to show their Studio.One multipanoramic camera system.

This year’s International Broadcasting Convention (IBC 2015) in Amsterdam gave ICoSOLE the opportunity to demonstrate its achievements. ICoSOLE was presentes in the Future Zone, a special area dedicated to innovative developments.


Our demonstrations

The Capture App is a specialised mobile phone app which allows users to create short video clips. The app gives instant feedback on the visual quality of the video, which avoids recording content that is under/overexposed, blurry or shaky.

These short clips (so-called Moments) are uploaded to the Wall of Moments which displays a grid of user created videos covering those parts of an event which are usually not reached by an events’ “official” camera teams.

The objective of the Smart TV Application is to offer users to experience an event from their living room in a way that is as comparable to a physical attendance. It provides: geographic maps, omni-directional video, professional and user-generated content, different camera angles and social media integration.

The Omnidirectional Video Capture System allows for cost effective recording of events “from the inside”. Using wide angle lenses on high resolution (12 megapixel) video cameras at multiple vantage points enables immersive capturing.
