Interactive TV by Text-To-Vision: Application Using TVML SDK on UNITY
2013 (English)In: Proceedings of CyberWorlds2013 / [ed] Conference Publishing Services (CPS), 2013Conference paper, Poster (Refereed)
We have been developing T2V (Text-To-Vision) technology which enables to produce CG animation from text. This technology is built on a TVML (TV program Making Language) core engine which produces TV-program-like animation from text input using real-time CG, voice synthesizing technique and so on. Recently, we have ported the TVML engine on a game engine UNITY. The TVML SDK on UNITY is provided to game developers enabling to make various interactive applications using T2V technology. Our aim is to integrate two different media: TV and Game to make new type of media named ‘gamingTV’ owing to the T2V technology. In this paper, as one of the functioning developments of gamingTV, we will introduce ‘Interactive TV’ application using the SDK. In this application, a user can interrupt the on-going show at any time to have a dialogue with the actors in the show, then return to the point that had been interrupted and resume the show. We have confirmed the potential of gamingTV through the user experience of our functioning development.
