CP - Collaborative project (generic)

COMPEIT creates interactive, personalised, shared media experiences on the Internet for feeling more present when interacting remotely with other people and enjoying media together.

Internet-based distribution will transform media broadcasting towards higher levels of interactivity and integration with virtual, mixed and augmented reality.

It will be enabled by new web technologies and a proliferation of devices for audio, video and tangible interaction.

COMPEIT will provide virtual eye contact, augmented reality and other features of mediated presence in an easy tu use manner:

  • Shared Experience with Tangible Interaction enables audiences to enjoy enhanced live media together, complemented by interactive games.
  • Broadcast Presence Studio mixes live media with various types of web-based content.
  • Mixed-Reality Interaction is an advanced web service where content generated by the Broadcast Presence Studio service can be mixed into the viewer's physical environment using ambient devices.

There will be open source software and a public experience lab where developers and useres can try out next-generation interactive media production and consumption.

 

Objective

COMPEIT creates a web-based system for highly interactive, personalised, shared media experiences. Research and development will link content-delivery networks with tools for enhancing mediated presence. COMPEIT takes the view that Internet-based distribution will transform traditional broadcasting towards higher levels of interactivity and integration with virtual, mixed and augmented reality, enabled by advanced web technologies and the proliferation of audio/video/tangible devices. The project addresses Quality of Experience in flexible, interactive media production and consumption systems designed for professional collaboration and shared leisure activities. It introduces the next step in interactive broadcasting systems by focusing technologies that enrich social connections, improve the feeling of being together in one shared space and enhance collaboration. Modular software will be developed based on low-cost, easily accessible web technologies (e.g HTML5, WebRTC, WebGL), leveraging on cloud based software access and distribution.<br/>Three key domains are identified for improving quality of experience:1) Spatial Connectedness2) Social Connectedness3) Information Connectedness<br/>COMPEIT develops and validates three key web services:a) Shared Experience with Tangible Interaction enables audiences to experience enhanced live media together, complemented by tangible and interactive gamesb) A Broadcast Presence Studio to mix live media with various types of web-based contentc) Mixed-Reality Interaction, an advanced WebRTC-based service where content generated by the Broadcast Presence Studio service can be mixed into the viewer's physical environment using ambient devices.<br/>Prototypes will be validated in an Experience Lab and via an online media distribution platform, complemented by a new national hospital which integrates real-time mediated communication to distributed care centres, private homes and classrooms.
