Teaching language

Suitable for English-speaking students


The aim of this UC is that students become knowledgeable in a number of new applications and services in the area of multimedia and acquire skills to analyze and design in some detail a service or application in particular. They should also do some development work to prove the concept.

Learning outcomes and competences

To successfully conclude this UC students should be able to show they that are capable of:

  • Identifying opportunities for offering new services / multimedia applications

  • Analyzing the state of the art in terms of offerings and related technologies for implementation

  • Designing the architecture of these services / applications

  • Proving its feasibility through a prototype.

Working method



New multimedia applications and services. Techniques for developing distributed applications and services. Presentation and discussion of the subjects chosen by each student for his work. Identification and analysis of relevant related projects. Setting goals and generic architectures of applications / services chosen. Refinement of the applications / services. Design of the demonstrator prototypes. Discussion of the low fidelity interfaces. Implementation of prototypes. Presentation of the reports and prototypes of applications / services.

Teaching methods and learning activities

Initially the relevant theoretical concepts for the development and evaluation of applications / services are introduced.

Follows a presentation phase of the 'state of the art' and of proposals of applications / services chosen.

Applications / services are then developed and demonstrated in the end . A report is also produced.
