WIM TV, an example of how's ojectives can be reached

Web, Internet and Mobile TV (WIM TV) is a DMP project to which members have given a substantial contribution. WIM TV is being trialled at Pechino during the Olympic games with content produced by Beijing citizens who describe their life in the city and released with a licence that can be interpreted by a iDrm device. Currently the intentions of the 6 Creative Commons licences can be expressed. The slogan is “discover Beijing during the Olympic Games, but outside of the Olympic Games”.

The WIM TV trial set up is depicted in Figure 1.

  1. Chillout Creator (CCD), is a software used to create “governed” content, i.e. a data structure with video, identifiers, metadata, licences etc., add descriptive panels and upload the result on the WIM TV server. The CCD software is available for Linux, Mac and Windows.
  2. Chillout Player (EUD), s a software used to navigate the content available on the WIM TV server (CPD), select them, accept the specific Creative Commons licence and watch then in streaming. the EUD software is available for Linux, Nokia N800 and Windows.

Besides the already mentioned CPD, the WIM TV Server contains the Content Identification Device (CID) and the Device Identification Device (DID. The services of the former can be invoked to register a new content item with the WIM TV server and obtain a unique identifier, while the services of the latter allow to verify the dentity of the devices that access to CPD servces.

Since the WIM TV trial concerns content released with a CC licence, it may be very important for the creator to be aware of “how well they are faring”. The Event Collection Device (ECD) collects all events that have been generated by thei EUDs that the creator has asked to be informed at the time of content creation.

The Gruppo Tecnologie delle Immagini of the Istituto di Elettronica ed Ingegneria dell’Informazione e Telecomunicazioni (IEIIT)  of the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR) hosts the WIM TV Server.

Currently the the DID of the WIM TV Server and the ECD are not yet operational.
