A Synthetic 3D Multimedia Environment

Type: 
Book Contribution
Abstract: 
In this chapter we present The MediaSquare, a synthetic 3D multimedia environment we are currently developing.<br> The MediaSquare enables users, impersonated as avatars, to browse and experience multimedia content by literally walking through it.<br> Users may engage in conversations with other users, exchange experiences as well as collectively explore and enjoy the featured content.<br> The combination of algorithms from the area of artificial intelligence with state-of-the-art 3D virtual environments creates an intuitive interface that provides access to manually as well as automatically structured multimedia data while allowing to take advantage of spatial metaphors.
