Multimedia

The effects of multimedia on human perception and behaviour are still only partially understood. This is especially true when more than one user is involved. We have looked at effects of multimedia on users and user requirements in multimedia systems from a variety of angles. New TV-centric multimedia services are being explored in the UNIC project.

What happens when multiple people want to use services on TV displays? What effects can multimedia rendering have on speech perception or on user trust?
