Unreal Engine experiences strand

Up to five prototypes that are built using Unreal Engine would be supported by Epic Games. Epic Games’ Unreal Engine is the world’s most open and advanced real-time 3D tool. Epic Games will be also providing technical support to all projects in the cohort that are utilising Unreal Engine.

StoryFutures Academy

Selected narrative based XR experiences will benefit from the expertise of StoryFutures Academy, who can guide creative teams and help them shape the narrative element of their piece, with a particular focus on writing and storytelling. The two themes that fit within this strand are:

Narrative led experiences

Projects that display a potential for narrative strength and quality

Repeatable experiences

Projects that have the potential to be a ‘returnable’ experience or format, for example, experiences that have the potential to repeat or expand, rather than being a one-off experience

5G-ready immersive content projects

This strand will select up to five prototypes that demonstrate the use of 5G or that are 5G ready. Digital Catapult will provide access to testbed facilities as well as technical mentorship to help build and validate the 5G capability.

Immersive content with an element of artificial intelligence (AI)

Up to two projects who apply to this strand will receive bespoke mentoring from Digital Catapult AI technologists to help develop the usage of AI in their projects.
