QoE for Multimedia Content Sharing
Multimedia applications are becoming more and
more part of our everyday life. With the fast development of social
networks and exchange platforms, users interact with each other through
multimedia content, from different places, using different platforms.
In order to make these applications available and successful, all the
elements involved in the chain between multimedia content production
and consumption have to work together with one goal in mind : maximising the
Quality of Experience on the user's side. This global issue requires
taking into account a high variability of devices, networks, users and
consumption scenarios, while addressing technological constraints related
to the available resources in terms of network capacities, computation
power and storage. In order to gain more knowledge on the provision and
assessment of Quality of User Experience, new parameters have to be
considered, such as from the psychophysical and environmental context.
These efforts are further justified by the emergence of new multimedia
concepts and applications, such as 3DTV, Free Viewpoint TV and Mobile
TV, which include complex interactions with the users and with their
environment. The QoEMCS workshop has been
part of the last two editions of EuroITV. The
third edition will once again focus on QoE
and multimedia interactions, centered around
the evaluation and optimization of interactions between users across
different places and platforms.
