Abstract
HDVIPER will design an open HD videoconferencing platform, where the following services will be accessed through a unified Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) over the Internet Protocol (IP):

  • media services;
  • control plane services;
  • network services.

To accomplish with this objective, Web Services will be used in order to provide and exploit services by interacting with the application, and a specialized version of the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) will be used to establish real-time HD sessions.
The ultimate mission of the project is to provide a converged platform for High Definition videoconferencing (unicast and multicast transmissions), to be tested in the following scenarios:

  • residential videoconferencing, where residents can freely communicate by using motion picture;
  • healthcare sector and e-health, where distance consultation can be held between hospitals in Europe, within national and international expert networks;
  • – business videoconferencing (also including distributed collaboration for product and service development within the industry and service sector), where small (unicast) and large scale (multicast) conferences can be held; furthermore, internal company communications can be managed by combining voice communications with HD video;
  • distance education and e-learning for minority languages and specialized education.

The expected impact of HDVIPER is to open up the traditional videoconferencing market, thus promoting the role of Europe as a leading technological player in High Definition videoconferencing services over the Internet.

Focus areas
  • HDVIPER will design an open HD videoconferencing platform, where the following services will be accessed through a unified Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) over the Internet:
    – media services
    – control plane services
    – network services
  • healthcare sector and e-health, where distance consultation can be held between hospitals in Europe, within national and intern. expert networks.

Expected outcome
The impact is to open up the traditional videoconferencing market, thus promoting the role of Europe as leading technological player in High Definition videoconferencing services over Internet
