The BIT Audiovisual was held in pavilion 7 at Feria de Madrid from the 8th to 10th May and brought together several of the outstanding initiatives from the audio-visual industry. In particular, it displayed a selection of the best projects within the framework of the R+D+BIT platform that develop technology with high added value and potential growth in the audio-visual industry. These are for both university and business environments. Two UC3M projects related to the field of audio-visual innovation were selected at the latest edition.

Project Azor

The first of these, named Azor, is a system which offers a comprehensive solution for capturing and editing multi-camera video through wireless technology. It was created by the UC3M research group Procesado Multimedia in collaboration with LabHipermedia, a spin-off owned by the University. The technology can be used for recording conferences with several cameras simultaneously or for analysing sporting events without the need for a large amount of technical or human resources or cables. The project innovated the capturing of several video signals at once through a wireless connection and the simultaneous editing of all the signals.

Project GoAll-PervasiveSUB

The second project, named GoAll-PervasiveSUB, was presented by the UC3M research group Softlab and aims to promote accessibility for deaf-blind people through a software which makes communication easier. Deaf blindness is one of the most severe disabilities but this application makes deaf-blind people less lonely and therefore removes one of the main obstacles which affect these people. This innovation makes watching television through GoAll possible. This is a pioneering global application which provides a personalised subtitling system adapted to the reading capabilities of each person.

BIT Audiovisual, organised by IFEMA, is an event open to Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American universities and companies who aim to exhibit the changes and trends in the image and sound sector, as well as drive commercial activity through exhibitions, demonstrations, talks, workshops and training sessions.
