Focusing on technology incubation at EPFL by setting up valorization and start-up projects that enhance the Montreux Jazz Festival digital archive whilst enabling people to experience its content in a smart and meaningful way.
In parallel to the digitization process, EPFL is developing the Montreux Jazz Festival digital resource with cutting-edge research emanating from a wide range of areas such as computing, signal processing, acoustics, augmented reality and Multimedia. The Metamedia Center at EPFL aims to accelerate technology transfer from research to industry via trans-disciplinary and collaborative methods.
The valorization part of the project is also concerned with the creation of a dedicated public space, Montreux Jazz Café at EPFL, that gives visitors the opportunity to interact with content from the archives in a personalized and immersive way. It is a place where Art, Technology and Culture combines as part of the ArtLab project.
