The ROMEO project targets the challenges of synchronised live 3D media delivery to groups of users. The concurrency of the media experience will enable users to collaborate and to jointly enjoy multi-view 3D content. This will facilitate application scenarios such as social TV and high quality real-time collaboration. For IRT, the three key aspects in the project are 3D visual attention modelling, hybrid play-out solutions (e. g. via DVB-T2 and P2P), as well as spatial audio coding and rendering.
NoTube demonstrates a new generation of Web services for context dependent and personalized selection and presentation of TV content. NoTube shifts digital entertainment from a single-TV viewer activity to a community-based experience by sharing preferences. NoTube realizes distributed personalization in an interactive and multi-device environment, enabling TV entertainment anywhere and anytime with the ubiquitous Web.
The work in the project was steered by three visionary use cases, namely personalized semantic news, personalized TV guide with adaptive advertising and Internet TV in the Social Web.
The NoTube platform is a Semantic Web infrastructure providing integrated content from broadcast, Web channels and social networks, as well as integrated functionality for Web service-based metadata exchange, user and context modelling, and personalised presentation generation.
IRT developed web services for the conversion of PrestoSpace metadata to TV-Anytime using BMF as intermediate format. The IRT NoTube Services can be accessed here.

The project iNEM4U (Interactive Networked Experiences in Multimedia for You) develops a service infrastructure that enables users to share integrated multimedia experiences in networked environments. In iNEM4U, these experiences involve seamless combinations of multimedia content and value-added services from different domains of technology, such as the Web (i.e. YouTube), in-home consumer electronics (DLNA/UPnP), mobile telecommunication networks (i.e. IMS), and interactive digital TV (i.e. DVB-IP). This results in much richer multimedia experiences than are possible today, for instance in terms of level of interactivity, ease of use, social connectedness and availability of community aspects. From a business perspective, the iNEM4U infrastructure allows different providers to establish cross-domain business collaborations so that they can collaboratively provide iNEM4U experiences.

IRT collaborates in the European research project P2P-NEXT (Peer-To-Peer Broadcasting) aiming to shape “next generation” internet TV based on peer-to-peer (P2P) technology.
