Project description

VISNET II builds on the success and achievements of the VISNET NoE to continue the progress towards achieving the NoE mission of creating a sustainable world force in Networked Audiovisual (AV) Media Technologies. VISNET II is a network of excellence with a clear vision for integration, research and dissemination plans. The research activities within VISNET II will cover 3 major thematic areas related to networked 2D/3D AV systems and home platforms. These are:

  • Video Coding
  • Audiovisual Media Processing
  • Security

DMAG activity

Our work inside this project comprises several activities, including:

  • Security applied to real time distribution of audiovisual content
