Under this Agreement, to be implemented by RAI’s Strategic Technologies Directorate, audiovisual productions will be filmed with innovative formats (3D, 4K and multi-channel audio) for the purpose of tourism promotion in the Valle d’ Aosta region. There will also be multimedia applications with augmented reality and interactivity in order to provide geographical, historical, cultural and gastronomic information.
The agreement will enable RAI to experiment with new broadcasting technologies such as DVB-T2, also in the “Lite” version suitable for reception on the move.
