Advancing European XR
eyecandylab has long been part of the XR4ALL platform, an initiative funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 framework to strengthen the XR industry in the European Union (EU). As already announced by XR4ALL last week, eyecandylab has been awarded a subgrant to further advance its augmented reality video platform with the specific goal of integrating its cloud-based content management system and Unity plugin.
Members of XR4ALL benefit from a wide range of services and tools. In addition to the XR company directory offered through its member area, XR4ALL is also increasingly offering tools and technology themselves for the use of its members. eyecandylab plans to make its web-based content management system capabilities available through the XR4ALL platform and therefore directly to its extensive community of innovators and creators.
Selection for more to come
After 140 applications, the 18 top-projects have been selected for the first phase of the program. During this initial period, the winners will expand upon and validate their concept from a business and a technical perspective with the objective of progressing into the second phase for an actual implementation of an MVP. This will enable developers and creators to encode their video content for visual recognition and augmented 3D experiences built with Unity.
