In the rapidly evolving landscape of digital entertainment, the year 2023 has witnessed a profound transformation in Video On Demand (VOD) Over-The-Top (OTT) platforms. These platforms have redefined how audiences access and consume content, introducing cutting-edge technologies and innovative features that have revolutionized the entertainment industry.

Embracing Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR)

In 2023, VOD OTT platforms have embraced AR and VR technologies to provide viewers with immersive and interactive experiences. Users can now step into virtual worlds, interact with characters, and actively participate in the content they are watching, transcending the boundaries of traditional passive viewing.

Imagine exploring an ancient civilization through the eyes of a protagonist, feeling the thrill of an adrenaline-pumping car chase, or even interacting with virtual avatars of celebrities and influencers. The integration of AR and VR into VOD OTT platforms has ushered in a new era of interactive and experiential entertainment.

Personalization: The Heart of the VOD Experience

Powered by advanced artificial intelligence (AI), VOD OTT platforms have taken personalization to new heights. By analyzing user behavior, preferences, and viewing habits, these platforms deliver tailor-made content recommendations, ensuring that viewers find exactly what they love without extensive searching.

This level of personalization ensures that users are presented with content that resonates with their tastes, creating a seamless and enjoyable content discovery experience. By removing the need for extensive searching, VOD OTT platforms have become the go-to destination for viewers seeking highly relevant and engaging content.

After Epic released the UE5 technology demo at the beginning of 2021, the discussion about UE5 has never stopped. Related technical discussions mainly centered on two new features: global illumination technology Lumen and extremely high model detail technology Nanite. There have been some articles [1 ][2] analyzing Nanite technology in more detail. This article mainly starts from the RenderDoc analysis and source code of UE5, combined with some existing technical data, aims to provide an intuitive and overview understanding of Nanite, and clarify its algorithm principles and design ideas, without involving too many source code level Implementation details.

Lumen is UE5’s GI system, it is different from the traditional real-time GI which only includes the contribution of indirect diffuse reflection. It also includes indirect diffuse reflection and indirect highlight, providing a new set of complete indirect lighting. Lumen supports both hardware-based RTX and software-based Trace algorithms. The starting point of this article is that Lumen GI uses the process, algorithm, and data structure analysis of indirect diffuse reflection part based on software Trace to understand the basic principle and operation mechanism of Lumen from a macro perspective.

Unity Performance Optimization Ⅵ: Resource Memory Leak

Views3.5K

Today, we will share some knowledge points related to resource memory leak. A memory leak is the most common issue that we continuously see and also are afraid of. What is the reason behind it? Because we can’t predict the extent of the leak before we locate the leak bottleneck, we had no idea whether it will burst out at a certain moment on the line. We have received feedback from developers that their players had no problem playing for half an hour, but they would get more and more stuck after 3 to 4 hours of playing, which they never expected before. How can it be solved? Today’s sharing will answer such questions.

UWA’s GOT Online-Assets report has a resource occupancy trend chart. If there is a rising trend like the one below, you must pay special attention.

Real world metaverses are here. You just have to know where to look. One of Sber AR/VR Lab projects of 2021

Reading time5 min
Views1.5K

Hi! I am Aleksey Rybakov, Product Owner at Sber ARVR Lab. 

And before telling you what we have achieved, let me explain the meaning of this article’s heading. Or more so, explain the word “metauniverse”. This term was well-described by Mark Zuckerburg: “Metauniverse is internet implemented, where instead of looking at internet, you are inside of it.” Like a parallel universe, which you can enter yourself with AR/VR gadgets or through a 3D-avatar.

In other words, a metauniverse is simultaneously a virtual space and a way of engaging with its objects without the common “screen + keybord/mouse/sensor” medium. 

And yes, metauniverses are here. But to get into one, you’ll need a few things. First, you need to know where to look. We will talk about that later when depicting a curious case in Moscow. Second, you need a technology that will help connect the virtual world with the real one. We will talk about that as well. 

Now, let me introduce: VPS.

Unfinished startups — the AELITA project

Back to the list
Introduction


I spent a long time thinking about whether or not I should write stories like this from the lives of innovators. After all, revealing the essence of unfinished project means you can lose the very foundation of the project, its pizazz and even its know-hows. Moreover, that's already happened to me in one of my projects from 10 years ago. I'm not going to give an example of this situation, it's already been talked about in another article. The story is on this site: intersofteurasia.ru/novosti/605/606.html.

However, considering that modern progress can't be stopped and that sooner or later some curious minds will get to the bottom of a technical solution for something like this, I decided to lift the veil a little bit on the secret life of an innovator.

Be it noted that this unfinished project with the provisional name AELITA is somewhat of a cross between biomedicine, electronics, psychology and much more, so getting it done isn't exactly easy. After all, for projects like this you need enthusiastic people working in different, sometimes diametrically opposed fields of science and technology, but an interdisciplinary approach is capable of giving surprising results if projects like it are completed.

The power of AI is well acknowledged by businesses as 84% of respondents in a study voted that they believe artificial intelligence will allow them to enjoy a competitive edge over competitors.

Although entrepreneurs have an idea about AI but what most of them lack is proper implementation. The use of optimum programming tools for a complex technology like AI can create wonders for the world of business.

Every custom web developer knows that a python is an apt tool for building AI-enabled -applications. The language has been used to create 126,424 websites so far. Since its launch in the late 1980s, python has seen remarkable growth not only in users but in applications too.

Python is the favorite language for software developers to create applications that have artificial intelligence, machine learning, etc features embedded in them. But there are reasons behind everything.

This blog is written with the intent to unveil these reasons. Let’s explore why python is extensively used in AI-enabled software development services.

Creator of while True: learn() on programming in game development, VR issues and machine learning simulation

Reading time22 min
Views4.3K


A few years ago I had a feeling that Oleg Chumakov (then working at the game studio Nival) was the most famous programmer in the game development industry. He was giving speeches, hosted Gamesjams and frequently showed up on the podcast How games are made.

When VR hit the market, Oleg was chosen to lead the company’s new department — NivalVR. But, as you probably know, VR didn’t quite take off as much as people expected.

I kind of moved to other to other things in life and stopped keeping up with game development for a while, but after getting into it again I noticed that things were looking up for Oleg’s team. Now it’s called Luden.io, and their machine learning expert simulator, while True: learn() became a huge hit in its admittedly small niche. Lots of cool stories are happening around the game and the team.

We decided to do an interview with Oleg, but I couldn’t stick to one topic — his life up to this moment has been, for the lack of a better word, “interesting”. He’s seen it all. And, to ensure that a programmer could talk about programming without fear of looking too “nerdy”, the interview was conducted by my friend, colleague and an experienced developer of its own fillpackart.
