Abstract

The IST European co-funded project DANAE is providing a full framework for the dynamic and distributed adaptation of scalable multimedia content based on media streaming technologies. It forms the backbone for the public release of a nomadic, interactive, multimedia guide that is expected to reach its final form by mid 2006 in the framework of an experimental deployment at the Museon. By using technological bricks provided by all partners involved in the DANAE project, this interactive guide will take advantage of the best of the wireless connectivity and multimedia capabilities of the new devices to offer innovative and therefore largely unexplored ways of presenting information. It will use for example 3D avatars for presenting the information and will deal as well with real time visitor contextual parameters. Other key issues like content creation techniques, content adaptation, dynamic update of multimedia applications and interactive presentation design will be also discussed in this paper.
