VISNET II NoE Project Summary
VISNET II is a European Network of Excellence (NoE) (http://www.visnet-noe.org), funded under the European Commission IST FP6 programme, which builds on the success and achievements of the VISNET I NoE to continue the progress towards achieving the NoE mission of creating a sustainable world force in Networked Audiovisual (AV) Media Technologies. Its main strategic objectives revolve around its integration, joint research and dissemination activities. More specifically, VISNET II aims to:

 Integrate world-leading institutions to create a world force in the area of Networked AV Media Technologies. Integration is aimed to be achieved both vertically within three major thematic areas covered by the NoE objectives and horizontally across the three themes defining the scope of research in VISNET II. Integration specific objectives involve the regular exchange of resources, facilities, technical and scientific skills and abilities between the participating organisations, so that their joint research potential and international competence can be unveiled. Additionally, strategic alliances between VISNET II partners will be built aiming at strengthening the foundations of research collaboration resulting in further technological excellence in the area of networked multimedia systems and AV processing techniques.

 Make significant contributions to the sustainable advance of research in the field of networked 2D/3D AV systems and home platforms. The joint research objectives cover three major thematic areas, namely:
o Advanced video coding
o AV media processing
o Security.

• Implement an efficient dissemination plan aiming at improving knowledge economy and enhancing the socio-economic life standards of EU citizens. The project’s dissemination objectives can be summarised as follows:
o Up-to-date spreading of technological and scientific achievements of the Network to the widest possible audience of all social and scientific backgrounds
o Exploitation of accruing technologies in technology transfer, SME investments and partnerships to facilitate tools and conditions that will improve the standards of life of EU citizens
o Implementation of a number of training programmes addressed to researchers as well as users of VISNET II technologies, emerging services and applications.

VISNET II brings together 12 leading European organisations in the field of Networked AV Media Technologies. The consortium consists of organisations known for their proven track record as well as both national and international reputations in audiovisual information technologies. VISNET II integrates a large number of researchers who have made significant contributions to the advance of this field of technology through standardisation activities, international publications, conferences and workshops activities, patents as well as many other prestigious achievements. The 12 integrated organisations represent 7 European states spanning across a major part of Europe, thereby promising the efficient dissemination of resulting technological development and exploitation to larger communities.
