Active capture at ACM MM 2010


FXPAL has a few papers appearing at the upcoming ACM Multimedia Conference in Firenze, Italy.  Among them is NudgeCam, which was recently featured in an article on MIT’s Technology Review as noted previously on this very blog.

NudgeCam is an experiment in “active capture”. Media capture (in this case, photos and videos) is enhanced by providing a template of elements to capture and also real-time interactive tips to aid the quality of each shot or clip.  The template allows the author to insure that essential story components are captured, and the realtime feedback helps insure that the parts are of high quality. Together the creation of high quality result is streamlined.

The author, Scott Carter, will be presenting this work on Tuesday, October 26th in Session S1 at ACM Multimedia in Firenze, Italy.

See you there!
