    Constraints on the storage, transmission and consumption deter seamless access to massive supply of multimedia contents readily available for consumers. Consequently, universal multimedia access (UMA) still remains a challenging objective. Context based digital item adaptation (DIA) is seen as a key technology to realise UMA. Scalability options in modern video coding standards provide inherent su... View full abstract»

    Due to the growing number of digital audiovisual media during the last years, the amount of metadata to describe the content increased significantly. In order to improve the search and retrieve of such data, the metadata standard MPEG-7 has been established. This international standard facilitates many application domains and is probably the richest multimedia metadata set available today. However... View full abstract»

    We have created a browser extension called Fusion Fox to integrate the BitTorrent file sharing protocol into the Firefox web browser. Fusion Fox adds support to the browser for a BitTorrent URL type, which can be used like any other URL. It thus enables the transparent use of BitTorrent to retrieve media content for HTML image tags or an embedded media player. This means that somebody viewing the ... View full abstract»

    Automated recommender systems play an important role in e-commerce applications. Such systems recommend items (movies, music, books, news, web pages, etc.) that the user should be interested in. These systems hold the promise of delivering high quality recommendations. However, the incredible growth of users and applications poses some challenges for recommender systems. One of the concerns for cu... View full abstract»

    The enforcement of DRM licenses is performed by a DRM controller, and it can be implemented at the application level, the operating system level and at a hardware level. In this paper we discuss our experiences in implementing an operating system level DRM controller based on the GNU-Linux kernel. This paper investigates the feasibility of creating a transparent, application independent DRM contro... View full abstract»

    Key management is the set of techniques and procedures supporting the establishment and maintenance of keying relationships between authorized parties. DRM platforms are usually composed by a set of different functionalities and components that usually manage and exchange keying material in a secure way. This key material has to be properly and securely managed in order to avoid the security compr... View full abstract»

    In this paper we propose some security mechanisms that can be used in a multimedia content distribution system with digital rights management (DRM) to ensure that the software tools used in the client side are trusted not only in the moment when they are installed but during their whole life operation. For this purpose, certification, verification, reverification and recertification mechanisms are... View full abstract»

    Digital watermarking today is used in various applications. Copyright protection for online shops by customer identification watermarking, also called transaction watermarking, may be the most prominent example for this, offering an alternative to more restrictive digital rights management approaches. But in order to enable efficient transaction watermarking, a new challenge for applied algorithms... View full abstract»

    Currently there is much interest in the creation of well-defined multimedia annotations, especially in the context of the semantic Web and MPEG standards. However, there is a lack of tools that support the creation of standards-based annotations. We introduce an approach that lets users create annotations using simple diagrams with unconstrained linking and labelling and an architecture for formal... View full abstract»

    Many music works produced in the past still exist only as original manuscripts or as photocopies. Preserving them entails their digitalization and consequent accessibility in a digital format easy-to-manage. The manual process to carry out this task is very time consuming and error prone. Optical music recognition (OMR) is a form of structured document image analysis where music symbols are isolat... View full abstract»
