Despite current measures, this week’s Future Sync 2020 Conference  went ahead. Due to be held at Plymouth University, instead the conference was held on-line with delegates attending from all over the world. A digital conference about the keeping in sync with the latest digital trends-perfect! And of course, for those that missed it, you can watch the whole thing on Youtube.

Future Synch 2020 Conference On-line

The two day conference covered topics from AI to the impact of technology on climate change.  With a packed programme, delegates heard about a range of digital trends. Speakers included technologists, creatives and business leaders. Among the speakers was our own Gareth Allen. He shared his passion for how virtual reality can improve access in his “Making the Invisible Visible” session.

Delegates tuned in from across the globe, one advantage of an on-line conference. They heard about the innovative work happening in the South West and our thriving digital community.  The feedback was extremely positive and it was also a great opportunity for people to connect and exchange ideas.

“Making the Invisible Visible

Soundview have been working with organisations to improve accessibility to their locations through immersive tech: namely VR. We have developed virtual reality tours that mean more people can have a positive experience at heritage sites of cultural and historical significance. You can learn more about our pilot project in our blog at Geevor tin Mine in Cornwall or check out our 360 VR video page.
