InhalteETH's Media Technology Center is a place where researchers and industry partners work together on projects to shape the future of media technology. The center provides a platform to work on technological innovations at the intersection of media technology, digital journalism, and design.
The idea of the module is that students from all design fields create media content and media formats based on inventions and developments of the MTC. There are no limits to idea generation and creativity. Courage to push boundaries and experiment is explicitly encouraged, based on the basic design skills and artistic ideas of the participating students.
Projects of MTC are, for example:
City-wide Augmented Reality: Development of stories, experiences, and graphics that MTC could incorporate into their prototypes. We think of something like time travel to old Zurich or crime thriller in the streets of Niederdörfli.
Swiss Voice Assistant: Content for MTC's voice assistant, what are stories you could tell using a voice assistant? Perhaps like Bandersnatch on Netflix but in Swiss German and only with speech? What interactions can be implemented only with different dialects?
Video synthesis project: which new media formats can be enabled by automatically generating audio and video?
TX Group, Ringier, SRG/SRF, the NZZ Media Group, and ETH Foundation support MTC.
