HotMD – Hot Topics in Multimedia Delivery

To be held in conjunction with IEEE ICME 2011.

Barcelona, 11-15 July 2011
Multimedia delivery platforms are evolving in several axes. From the transmission point of view, moving from purely broadcast based to hybrid broadcast-broadband and broadband networks, being of special interest the converged traditional use of media with mobile internet devices. Also, from point of view of content, moving from SD and HD images to 3D and multiview immersive experiences. From the user perspective where, user personalization and context are becoming more and more important as well as new enhanced ways of user interaction. And, finally, the convergence of media delivery and consumption with other technologies, as the ones of videogames, where real and virtual media are combined to provide a unique immersive user experience.

Multimedia content distribution has always been a fascinating and motivating topic to the multimedia research community. After years of active research and industrial efforts, it has reached a stage that “all of us can get our 15 minutes on YouTube”. However, there is still a long way towards the ultimate goal of anyone being able to consume multimedia content anytime, anywhere. As more right holders of professional multimedia content are ready to test water of new distribution methods, such as Internet video and IPTV; as the ever increasing capabilities of emerging devices, such as smartphones and tablets, enable new multimedia experiences on-the-go; as rapidly expanding cloud services start to offer greater assistance to multimedia distribution, we are now at a time when these are ample opportunities for the research of multimedia content distribution. Solving the real challenges towards the ultimate goal of multimedia content distribution is not only inspiring and exciting, but also bound to have significant and long lasting impact.
