iCaCoT aims to develop techniques for interactive camera-based coaching and training (iCaCoT) for visitors and sports enthusiasts in Schladming using interactive video navigation. The goal of this experiment is to showcase the unique properties of tiled adaptive streaming, a technology that was developed in the EU FP7 project FascinatE and that allows users to navigate freely through high resolution video panoramas, while the application reduces bandwidth requirements by only sending that part of the video a user is interested in.During this experiment, iCaCoT will develop the iCaCoT application and run two experimental periods at the EXPERIMEDIA Schladming venue to test the feasibility of the concept of interactive camera-based coaching and training. Through the experiment, the existing EXPERIMEDIA technical components, notably the Experiment Content Component, will be used and tested. The experiment will have impact by raising the attractiveness of Schladming as a venue for ICT-driven sport tourism, by providing valuable input to MPEG DASH standardization, by developing technology for large-scale tests by the BBC beyond Schladming and EXPERIMEDIA, and by enhancing the potential for exploitation of tiled streaming technology.

The experiment is being conducted by TNO
