Mobile Vision Mixer: A System for Collaborative Live Mobile Video Production
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Mobile phones equipped with video cameras and access to high-bandwidth networks enable a new generation of mobile applications: live amateur video production. There are already mobile technologies that allow capturing, editing and broadcasting live video from mobile phones; however some parts of production techniques still remain exclusively in the hands of professionals; multi-camera filming in a live broadcast of sporting events is an obvious example for such.
In this thesis, a system is described that is developed to address these needs for amateur video producers. Specifically, it focuses on providing a real-time collaborative mobile environment that can be used by mobile users who are interested in making live video from various angles only by using their phones.
A user study was also conducted to evaluate the system and see how people would use the system to collaboratively produce a live video. Results from the study prove that although producing a live mobile video is not always easy and straightforward, features like live preview and being able to actively communicate with each other are of great importance and help.
