Video Communications for Networked Communities - Vconect [EU FP7 STREP Project]
December 2011 - November 2014
The Vconect vision is the adoption of high-quality enriched video as a medium for mass communication within communities. Vconect is building a video communication platform which models and supports the complex communication topologies that characterize conversations between group members. The system will take intelligent decisions to mediate the communication at the level of audio-visual choices, screen layout and network capabilities. Vconect is ensuring the wide applicability of the platform by implementing, testing and evaluating it in the context of two different use cases. The first based on the integration of video conferencing into social networking services, the second based on group mediated performance.
