Gerard Wilkinson

I am a PhD student investigating the application of the Internet of Things to inform the production and consumption of media. The focus of this project is to use this data to enable Object-based Media (OBM) which requires a scene to be described in meta-data to re-configure media based upon the device being used for playback. In a production scenario, we investigate labelling of actions performed by a subject using sensors within a connected environment. This can be used to inform the re-configuration of media for playback on a range of different ‘objects’. Further to this we will investigate how we can create new immersive media consumption experiences using OBM, utilizing the sensors within a connected environment to utilize action data to perform for example step detection, intelligent playback and quality detection/training.
