Succeeded in Converting 360-degree Real Video to 6DoF With MATRIX and AI: Movement Demo Video Released
TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Metaverse advanced technology research organization “MATRIX GENESIS LABS” operated by MetaReal Group’s MATRIX Co., Ltd. (Head office: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; Representative Director: Junichi Goishi; hereinafter “MATRIX”) has succeeded in converting 360-degree video to 6DoF, and released a movement demonstration video (https://youtu.be/IYA1kaM_yP8).

Regarding 6DoF for 360-degree video
Until now, the viewing position of video shot with a 360-degree camera was fixed to the position of the camera at the time of shooting.
This time, MATRIX GENESIS LABS has generated an AI model that predicts the depth of 360-degree images, and by integrating it with a Metaverse world display application equipped with a position movement function, it becomes possible to simulate movement within 360-degree images (6DoF).
This technology opens up possibilities for viewers to freely roam within enormous 360-degree worlds, which will lead to a significant reduction in the cost of creating a Metaverse world.
MATRIX GENESIS LABS believes that a vast and free Metaverse can be achieved by breaking through the resource limits of labor-intensive world generation methods through the power of AI.
Currently, the range of movement of the viewer is limited to the range of the originally captured video. We are seeking to solve this problem by combining seamless connections between images and automatic world generation by AI.
