POLYMNIA - personalised leisure and entertainment over cross media intelligent platforms
POLYMNIA provides a new and innovative solution for the building of personalised content in entertainment parks and cultural institutions (museums, exhibitions). The system will enable the visitor to be the real protagonist in the venue and allows for example the automatical creation of personal video sequences or the interactive sythesize of webbased collections. Furthermore visitors can share their experiences with friends and relatives who are at home and join the tour through Internet. POLYMNIA provides solutions for the whole process chain: creation, aquisition; management and processing, delivery and streaming of digital content.
The task of IIS is to develop realtime image processing algorithms for recognition, localisation and identification of humans. There are no limitations regarding environmental conditions. To retrieve the resulting video sequences, content related description and organisation schemes basing on the existing MPEG-7 standard will be developed. In this way scalable and efficient access to content information will be obtained.
