LiVR will be an application intended for viewers, but also for entertainment professionals. The ambition is to launch the app before the end of the public service delegation that sees Edeis on top of the Roman ruins in Nîmes. Romain Bellovos, CEO of R2B, talks about this novelty.

Nîmes can be used for experimentation but error is impossible in this sector, so the application must be perfect before it is put into service. Anyway, the Middle East is already looking forward to it! ” This is an offer that we have been implementing for a year and is a real innovation in our sector of activity. We are working on an app that will translate into three service offerings. The first is a live broadcasting solution for shows. From home, via a Livr ticket, as on Netflix, you will have access to shows via the ticket office. You will be able to access the camera points and each point will have the exact audio of the chosen location, as if you were there. As if you were a spectator there. Let’s imagine, in Nîmes, a show about the Romans… It should interest people internationally, right? We are open to the whole world, not just to the public face to face, The possibilities are enormous. »

But you will understand that Lever operates on three bases. The other two pillars are augmented reality and virtual reality. ” When you arrive at the venue you are going to attend, the augmented reality technology will bring you additional effects. Take the squares, if you’re sitting down and attacking Hadrian’s wall, you might be able to see ballistics in real action through your phone. But it doesn’t have to be a game! It is intended for viewers and its purpose is to think in order to produce additional effects, at certain times, with a notification on the program or by phone. We can also imagine seeing right behind the scenes when we wait for the show to start or many other things like content on the site, in the area… It will be very fun. »

In terms of virtual reality, I may also tell you that two years of work done with Jean-Michel Jarre for the Ministry of Culture and the City of Paris when he gave a show in the heart of Notre Dame was very useful. ” We are working on creating virtual worlds. We will make the effects accessible to artists around the world so that they can perform there remotely. There, we talk especially about the old Orange Theatre. CNRS reconstructed the theater as it was 2,000 years ago, with the acoustics and decor of the time. If an artist who will be working in virtual reality comes to the stage to compare the acoustics, he will see how much has changed since then. »

Thanks to the Parisian show by Jean-Michel Jarre at Notre Dame and produced by R2BEveryone understood that this kind of progress is necessary in a globalizing world. ” All major capitals were cancelled, Paris asked us to think of an orchestration and everyone was happy. After the horrific images of the fire that destroyed it, we wanted to see again the image of Epinal which is Notre Dame. We had to work on it in virtual reality to make it a place that welcomes the latest technology. Jean-Michel Jarre had sensors, and his avatar was playing in the heart of Notre Dame in real time. Where Americans score it all, we do it all and live with all of life’s challenges! 75 million viewers, anyway, we didn’t expect that. We have seen the Chinese talking to the Chileans or the Tunisians about what they saw when they were thousands of kilometers away. The Technology can create affinities, you just need to find the right uses for it. »
