On June the 28th, a roadshow about technological innovation in public television service in Rome presented the stereoscopic solution developed by Regione Piemonte, CSP and Centro Ricerche Rai (the research center of the public national tv broadcaster) in the context of the regional “ATLAS project”.
The ATLAS Project developed a 3D avatar for authomatic translation in deaf sign language. In particular, CSP has developed a system of stereoscopic reproduction to visualize the ATLAS avatar, who acts as sign language interpreter for deaf people.
