EXPERIMEDIA explores new forms of social interaction and networked media experiences. It is developing and operating a facility that offers researchers what they need for large-scale Future Media Internet experiments. The state-of-the-art Future Internet testbed infrastructure supports large-scale experimentation of user generated content, 3D Internet, augmented reality, integration of online communities and full experiment lifecycle management.

What you get: EXPERIMEDIA targets venue managers, boradcasters, content and service providers and application developers, including mobile. The facility enables these users to gain valuable insight into how Future Internet technologies can be used and enhanced to deliver added value, legally compliant media experiences to consumers. Users can take advantage of three culturally important "smart venues" offered by the facility with state-of-the-art testbed reources, as well as access expert support to help them design, execute and analyse innovative socio-technical experiments.

How to get involved: In 2014, EXPERIMEDIA is opening the facility for experimentation outside the consortium. If you have an idea and would like to explore it, please contact info@experimedia.eu.

EXPERIMEDIA and the 3D-LIVE project. 3D-LIVE develops and experiments a User Driven Mixed Reality and Immersive (Twilight) platform connected to EXPERIMEDIA facilities. The aim is to investigate Future Internet broadband capacity to support real-time immersive situations, and evaluate both the quality of experience and of service. EXPERIMEDIA advances in new methods and algorithms for content processing for the efficient delivery of augmented reality to mobile devices and 3D processing for on the fly reconstruction of live events in indoor geolocalised spaces.

Funding information: EXPERIMEDIA is funded through the European FIRE programme for the period October 2011 to September 2014.
