VRTogether is an end-to-end system for the production and delivery of photorealistic Social VR experiences. It aims at radically improving the experience by innovating in how media formats are used. The core research objectives of VRTogether are to:
1. Develop and integrate new media formats to increase the feeling of realism and (co)presence.
2. Enrich existing production pipelines and practices.
