Synch legal advisor to ChyronHego AB in relation to 2-IMMERSE
2-IMMERSE is a collaborative project co-funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Research Programme with the ambition to deliver technology enabling services ‘to immerse’ audiences in shared and personalised multiscreen experiences. Synch has been retained as legal advisor to ChyronHego AB in relation to the negotiations and entering into of a consortium agreement between the project partners which include, inter alia, British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), Cisco and BT.
2-IMMERSE brings together broadcasters, producers, rights holders, technology companies and universities to design, build and test four prototype experiences involving live performances and sport. 2- IMMERSE will explore the benefits and challenges of object based broadcasting where content objects are rendered at the client device (the television) rather than prior to transmission at the broadcaster. 2-IMMERSE runs from 1 December 2015 to 30 November 2018.
