    Web 2.0 is an area that's gained much attention recently, especially with Google's acquisition of YouTube. Given the strong focus on media in many Web 2.0 applications, from a multimedia perspective the question arises what multimedia (research) and Web 2.0 have in common, where the two fields meet, and how they can benefit each other View full abstract»

    Although events are ubiquitous in multimedia, no common notion of events has emerged. Events appear in multimedia presentation formats, programming frameworks, and databases, as well as in next-generation multimedia applications such as eChronicles, life logs, or the Event Web. A common event model for multimedia could serve as a unifying foundation for all of these applications View full abstract»

    In this article, we present Knight, an automated surveillance system deployed in a variety of real-world scenarios ranging from railway security to law enforcement. We also discuss the challenges of developing surveillance systems, present some solutions implemented in Knight that overcome these challenges, and evaluate Knight's performance in unconstrained environments View full abstract»

    A stereoscopic system based on a multispectral camera and an LCD projector uses multispectral information for 3D object reconstruction. By linking 3D points to a curve representing the spectral reflectance, the system gives a physical representation of the matter that's independent from illuminant, observer, and acquisition devices View full abstract»

    We developed a peer-to-peer local area network client back-end buffering system module for video-on-demand (VoD) systems. Our aim is to minimize both the number and duration of stops experienced by users, thereby minimizing the cost while improving the performance. Simulations show that our module outperforms both typical and recently proposed VoD systems View full abstract»

    We introduce a force-field haptic rendering method for converting visual data to haptic data. The method includes a novel framework to convert specialized 3D map models into force fields. We generate the final force fields by using structure from motion and implicit surface approximation algorithms. Visually impaired people then can learn to navigate with these maps, using off-the-shelf haptic View full abstract»

    We consider the problem of distributing video data from one sender to a population of interested clients. Deploying an overlay network with an application-layer multicast, we propose a scalable forward-error-correction-based, multiple-description coding packetization scheme to achieve optimal performance for each client View full abstract»

    Instant messaging is a powerful tool for real-time communication and online collaboration. IM's early focus was text communication, but with the ubiquity of multimedia-enabled devices, there has been great interest in extending IM to support multimedia interactions. Jabber is an open-standards-based approach for IM. The article describes the development of new enhancements to Jabber that provide a... View full abstract»
