T2V is a technology that converts text to vision. It enables a user to create computer animation by simply typing in a script on a PC. We developed a PC application named “T2V Player” that interprets a user’s script to produce animation in real-time by using real-time computer graphics (CG), synthesized voices and other techniques.
In his presentation, Masaki will first explain the basic concept of T2V and TVML and show some demonstrations with T2V Player actually in working and introduce available functions of T2V Player. Then, he will introduce number of activities so far and related developments. Lastly he will discuss the future prospect and research theme examples based on this technology.
Masaki Hayashi received his B.S., M.S. and Dr. Eng. in electronics engineering from Tokyo Institute of Technology in 1980, 1983 and 1999 respectively. He has engaged in research on CG, image-processing, image compositing systems and virtual studios. He is currently involved in research on automatic TV program generation using scripting language TVML.
