An Augmented Reality and 360-degree Video System to Access Audiovisual Content through Mobile Devices for Touristic Applications
In the recent years, consumption and usage of multimedia content has shifted to handheld devices, especially with the introduction of second screen applications. In this paper we address the situation of delivering multimedia information to users using modern and novel techniques to attract their attention in environments like fairs, parties or showrooms in an entertaining and educative way. Two different approaches are presented: an Augmented Reality application on mobile devices and a 360-degree video player remotely controlled by a handheld device. Both ideas focus on the use of mobile devices, as they have become a powerful tool always worn by its owners.
