EU-IST Project Live: Live Staging of Media Events
Abstract: This paper gives an overview, the main objectives and the first results of the EU IST project Live. This integrated project will investigate new methods and formats for authoring and production of live sports events in a professional broadcast environment. To achieve these new interactive TV formats the processing of different types of audio-visual material must be enhanced to allow for a more sophisticated selection and advanced authoring of sports content. This live staging process will generate several output streams which are interlinked with each other. The consumers have the benefit that they can select and receive video material in a more personalized manner.
