InterMedia Interactive Media with Personal Networked Devices

Goal

The convergence of end devices for audio-visual media surpasses forward today at home, as well as in mobile applications. It is nevertheless still device-centred and reaches limitations when a common interdevice usage of media is concerned. The project InterMedia seeks progress beyond home and device-centric convergence toward truly user-centric convergence of multimedia. Our vision is The User as Multimedia Central: the user as the point at which services (multimedia applications) and the means for interacting with them (devices and interfaces) converge. Key to our vision is that users are provided with a personalized interface and with personalized content independently of the particular set of physical devices they have available for interaction (on the body, or in their environment), and independently of the physical space in which they are situated. Our approach to this vision is to investigate a flexible wearable platform that supports dynamic composition of wearable devices, an ad-hoc connection to devices in the environment, a continuous access to multimedia networks, as well as adaptation of content to devices and user context.

InterMedia is a Network of Excellence with 16 partners from 10 countries, involving both industry and universities. It is a four-year project funded by the European Commission as part of its Sixth Framework Programme.
