FP7 ICT T-NOVA was organised and hosted at NCSR Demokritos premises by MediaNet Lab. Project T-NOVA has officially started at 1/1/2014 and its duration is 3 years. The project is coordinated by NCSRD (Dr. A. Kourtis).
With the aim of promoting the NFV concept, T-NOVA introduces a novel enabling framework, allowing operators not only to deploy virtualized Network Functions (NFs) for their own needs, but also to offer them to their customers, as value-added services. Virtual network appliances (gateways, proxies, firewalls, transcoders, analyzers etc.) can be provided on-demand as-a-Service, eliminating the need to acquire, install and maintain specialized hardware at customers’ premises.

MNL presented a study on the effects of Video Transcoding Parameters on Event Detection for Surveillance Systems
Dr. Emmanouil Kafetzakis presented a full paper at IEEE International Symposium on Multimedia (ISM), held at Anaheim Marriott Hotel, California, U.S.A., 9-11 December 2013. The ISM conference is an international forum for researchers to exchange information regarding advances in the state of the art and practice of multimedia computing, as well as to identify the emerging research topics and define the future of multimedia computing. The paper, entitled “The Impact of Video Transcoding Parameters on Event Detection for Surveillance Systems”, explains the need for transcoding and studies different video quality metrics. Commonly used algorithms for motion and person detection are More >
