Weak Signal's description 
The main idea of My-e-Director project is to research and develop a unique interactive broadcasting service enabling end-users to select focal actors and points of interest within real-time broadcasted scenes. The service will resemble an automated ambient intelligent director that will operate with minimal or even without human intervention. Contrary to state-of-the art services of similar nature that focus on few targets and low-level activity scenes, My-e-Director will be implemented in the scope of large- scale multi-actor, multi-target environments and high-activity scenes.The key innovative feature of the My-e-Director broadcasting service is the personalised selection of "targets" via semantic search, and accordingly the delivery of a personalized video stream to end-users. Delivery will be supported through a variety of channels including IPTV, DVB-T, DVB-H, as well as mobile networks. The personalized selection and assembly of the target streams will be based on a context-aware multi-camera selection algorithm.
