“GaliTracker” presented on the 2nd Matterhorn Unconference

15 Jun “GaliTracker” presented on the 2nd Matterhorn Unconference

Our new “Galitracker” project was presented at the 2nd Opencast-Mattherhorn Unconference that took place on Harvard University campus (Jun 6–8, 2012).

What is GaliTracker?

GaliTracker is a smart solution to transform dual-stream Matterhorn or Galicaster recordings into single-stream videos for their distribution to iTunesU, YouTube or mobile devices. VGA and professor videos are “glued” together side by side, but the video layout is optimized by dynamically cropping and zooming the professor video. GaliTracker guarantees plenty of room for the VGA video while the professor is always present in a smaller area, but large enough to keep the attention of the viewers, read non verbal communication, etc. GaliTracker Core is based on algorithms property of Multimedia Technologies Research Group – University of Vigo.
