Media Networks Laboratory is participating in the FP7/SEC GERYON Project, which has started on December 2011. GERYON will provide an unified answer to the problems that system integrators must face when interconnecting different emergency networks by bringing together and deploying in a specialised manner the common technical and operational logic regarding Identity Management, Security, Signalling, Transcoding and enhanced emergency services deployment. Instead of duplicating the same functionality in different gateways for each pair of technologies to be connected, GERYON will extract and unify the related management modules in a technology independent way and will provide mechanisms and interfaces for an More >
Media Networking for Cloud-based Media Surveillance Platform: MNL participating in FP7/SEC SAVASA project
Media Networks Laboratory is participating in the FP7/SEC SAVASA Project, with a total budget of Eur 4M, aiming at providing a common platform for Surveillance Systems based on a cloud infrastructure. in the frame of this project MNL will implement the distributed video surveillance network (using cloud computing technology). Additionally MNL will develop the network security components for secure archive access and retrieval in the distributed video archive architecture based on an IP environment. The project started on December 12, 2011.
Project overview: The SAVASA project aims to create a common platform that provides for the decoupling of CCTV and Video Archive More >

An architecture for the deployment of Media Ecosystems has been defined in the frame of the ICT ALICANTE project. A Media Ecosystem is an integrated environment bringing together Network operators, Service/Network Providers and end-users/prosumers which collaboratively offer and exploit resources in order to publish, share and consume media services. The architecture proposed incorporates several features in the context of the Future Internet, including virtualisation, cross-layer optimisation and content awareness. The relevant paper was presented in the IEEE ISCC, Corfu, Greece, June 2011. Read the article here.
Media Networks Laboratory ran a series of seminars to educate high school teachers on digital terrestrial television technology (DVB-T). The lectures were accompanied by a laboratory demonstration, where lecture attendees were presented a fully operational end-to-end DVB-T system. The seminars were organised by the Ministry of Lifelong Education. The presentation and a relevant information video (both in Greek) are available in the Education section.
MNL participated in the Second W3C Web and TV Workshop, held in Berlin, February 8-9, 2011 and is now a full member of the newly launched “Web and TV” Interest Group of the W3C. The Web and TV Interest Group’s scope of work covers audio-visual content, e.g., broadcasting programs and Web pages, and related services delivered by satellite and terrestrial broadcasting, or via cable services, as well as delivery through IP.
The tasks the Interest Group will undertake include:
- Identification of requirements for the Web to function effectively with TV services on TV devices and TV-like devices; Note “TV services” here means all More >
Media Networks Laboratory is participating in the ambitious FP7/SEC PERSEUS Project, with a total budget of Eur 42.2M, aiming at intelligent maritime border surveiilance. MNLab will design and implement the communication networks needed to interchange video/image/voice/data traffic among the heterogeneous surveillance system involved in the demonstration platform. The project will start on Jan 1, 2011.
Project Description: PERSEUS project proposes a large scale demonstration of a European Maritime surveillance system of systems, integrating the existing operational maritime surveillance systems (the French SPATIONAV, the Spanish SIVE, the Italian NCC and the Greek assets) and enhancing them with innovative capabilities to directly address More >
