EXPERIMEDIA will develop and operate a unique facility that offers researchers what they need for large-scale “Future Media Internet” experiments, since extensive research into testbeds is needed to support the R&D of large-scale social and networked media systems as well as to understand and manage complex communities and ecosystems.
Testbed technologies will include user-generated high quality content management and delivery, a 3D Internet platform and tools for 3D reconstruction from live events, augmented reality platform, tools for integration of social networks, access technologies and a range of network connectivity options. Experiments will be conducted in the real-world at live events and to diverse communities to accelerate the adoption of FMI. Testbeds include the Schladming Ski Resort, the Multi-Sport High Performance Centre of Catalonia, historical sites provided by the Foundation for the Hellenic World and the 3D Innovation Living Lab.
Experiments will explore new forms of social interaction and rich media experiences considering the demands of online and real-world communities.
