Use Case: Multimedia Adaptation

use case related to issue 6084


The aspect of interactivity in web applications with respect to user centred content adaptation is becoming more demanding. Adaptation can cover the following contexts:

  • adaptation of media based on constraints of a specific user profile (e.g. age or time restriction for videos)
  • adaptation of media to particular user requests (e.g. provide a summary of a sport event, present the funny parts of a audio interview, etc.)
  • adaptation as part of an interactive generation process (e.g. show me a video that presents interviews on topic X in a biased fashion taken from a particular collection, interactive advertisements - see examples below) => here it is important to distinguish between media that were created to form a collection (see the examples below) or media items that are collected on a more arbitrary basis from different collections (see the cultural heritage examples at Audiovisual archive as a Cultural Heritage Institution
  • adaptation of media in an interactive environment based on group behaviour (e.g. advertisements on large electronic billboards based on the clustering of information collected from mobile phones accessed in a specified area around that screen, adapting the style of media in a public environment based on user activity - content on screens and audio in a bar)

The challenge for this wg is to establish annotations that facilitate

  • various processes in multimedia generation (e.g. search, manipulation, collaging)
  • constraints for a particular context
  • a set of specialised tags that allow the creation of rhetoric flow (we focus on the coherence not on the linking)
  • a set of specialised tags that facilitate the emotional/experiential flow
