Research on Future Media Internet

Funded under: FP7-ICT


This White Paper reflects the consolidated opinion of 36 experts from the EU and the USA on aspects related to the Future Media Internet (FMI), under the guidance of the Networked Media Systems Unit of the Information Society and Media Directorate General of the European Commission. More specifically, this paper describes the challenges provisioned by the experts for the upcoming years, concerning the FMI, along with potential scenarios, paying specific attention to its provisional network and 3D content characteristics.
The vision of the FMI Task Force is that the current Internet is evolving towards providing gully immersive experiences, which give rise to innovative applications notably in gaming technologies, virtual worlds (as mixed world's) and communications. Due to the double nature of the Future Media Internet (network and media/content) different, but definitely cooperative, aspects are exhaustively discussed and analyzed. These aspects concern both potential ingredients of next generation networks and new forms of media.
