Last 27 and 28th June, the University of Surrey held the six-monthly consortium meeting of VisualMedia project, the event counted with the presence of representatives from all the participating organisations.
The occasion served for checking the current state of VisualMedia application including all modules. A recreation of the whole system was performed assessing the global workflow from social media data publishing to graphics visualization and manipulation. Likewise, the consortia took the opportunity of going over the results achieved so far, to later on, plan the remaining six months of the project lifetime, with an emphasis on the upcoming validation stage that is going to take place in broadcaster partners´ facilities. In addition, the exploitation plan and IPR issues were discussed with the main goal of facilitating the future commercialisation of the resulting products by the industrial partners. The University of Surrey kindly put at the Consortia´s disposal their facilities and studio for performing a demo in situ. Last but not least, the meeting was a fantastic occasion for strengthening the relationship among partners and conduct some team-building sessions. Next gathering is expected to be in December at TVR´s facilities located in Buchares, where we´ll focus on sharing the use experiences with VisualMedia technology.
