Capturing Moments Together: Collaborative Mobile Video Production
Source: Video interaction – Making broadcasting a successful social media - Workshop at CHI'2011 (2011)
Abstract: Traditional cameras and video equipment are gradually losing the race with smart-phones and small mobile devices that allow video, photo and audio capturing on the go. Users are now quickly creating movies and taking photos whenever and wherever they go at concerts and events. Still, in-situ media capturing with such devices poses constraints to any user, especially amateur ones. In this paper, we argue that these can be overcome with cooperative ad-hoc producing. To support this, we propose as system that relies on ad- hoc in-situ collaboration offering users the ability to switch between streams and cooperate with each other in order to capture better media with mobile devices.
