Live Video-to-Video Supporting Interactive City Infrastructure

Objective

The aim of LiveCity is to empower the citizens of a city to interact with each other in a more productive, efficient and socially useful way by using high quality video-to-video (v2v) over the Internet. Video-to-video can be used to save patients' lives, improve city administration, reduce fuel costs, reduce carbon footprint, enhance education and improve city experiences for tourists and cultural consumers.
We build a wireline and 4G wireless network of cities and include a right of way without interference from unwanted traffic, so that each user in any of the involved cities can "experience" live interactive high definition video-to-video. LiveCity is a technology integration trial which offers advanced services to approximately 2,670 users in five European Cities. This unifying approach in five cities underpins a use case framework and technology platform which can be rolled out to other cities and communities on a mass market basis, following the life of the Project.
We propose to pilot a number of video-to-video services in five cities for a diverse range of applications in the areas of Emergency Services, eHealth, Municipal Services, Education and City Experiences. The cities involved are Dublin, Athens, Luxembourg (city), Greifswald and Valladolid. LiveCity will pilot these live high quality video-to-video applications in order to evaluate social utility and demonstrate value to the city citizens.
Stakeholder evaluation and key performance indicators will be measured, analysed and disseminated. The LiveCity hypothesis is that these indicators can be enhanced with video-to-video. For example, in the emergency services' use case, important indicators are time to delivery of clot busting drugs and patient survival rate. Other indicators will be collected and evaluated for the different Livecity pilots. We build a business case for the rollout of the services to all the major cities in Europe.
