Project Description

Tagesschau 2025

What does it mean to make news volumetrically tangible in the future? When the show leaves the screen and news can suddenly be experienced in a new way, weather maps hover over your own couch and the lunar eclipse takes place in your own living room. To answer this question, the Tagesschau ventured an exciting look into the future and produced a complete episode of the Tagesschau in augmented reality. For the first time, visitors at the IFA 2019 were able to experience how news can be presented more excitingly and experienced within their own four walls using new technologies. Around 700 people every day watched the program on 20 iPads simultaneously at the IFA. It is imperative that the Tagesschau preserves its serious and trustworthy image. In order to preserve authenticity, the news anchor Linda Zervakis was recorded volumetrically with all natural details.  In turn, her captured image can therefore not only be placed anywhere, but in comparison to classic 3D avatars, actually looks like a real person.  Such a new format of delivering news allows one different perspectives and to focus on areas one considers are important. The visitors’ feedback on the project was overwhelming. This endeavor was an enormous success and represents a milestone in the development of broadcasting. Volucap is proud to have created, together with the Tagesschau, a worldwide unique case that not only shows the usefulness of new technologies in news, but also paves the way for future augmented news reports.
