Connected and Social media ICoSOLE will bring events extending over large areas to the audience by combining audio-visual streams captured by professionals as well as by end-users.
Live events such as music festivals or triathlons extend over large areas. Due to economic limitations the coverage of such events by TV stations can only focus on preselected parts, which often come out not to be the most interesting ones. On the other hand several new video camera types (especially such ones with extremely wide fields of view) and personal devices equipped with good quality cameras and audio recording capabilities are available.
ICoSOLE addresses the need for better covering events by combining traditional broadcast technology with new video and audio recording devices as well as personal devices. The project will investigate how the content from different devices can be combined, edited and provided to the viewers by means of traditional broadcast technology but also with web based technology. This will give attendees of the event, but to a bigger extend remote viewers, more choices when watching the event as well as the opportunity to consume the most interesting events in a flexible way.
