What is the vision for the Future Media Internet ecosystem, and how will it be used within FLAME?

FLAME aims to optimise media content delivery by enabling deep interactions between media service providers and an underlying network using software defined networking and information centric networking techniques. The main target is to provide a significant leap forward for media delivery supporting personalized, interactive, mobile and localized (PIML) workflows. The FLAME platform provides this leap through capabilities for low latency distributed computing as well as content over a 5G-enabled programmable infrastructure, providing the user with faster access to media and services, lower latency and higher personalization of the experience through closer media processing. Through the platform’s fast and dynamic service request routing capability, media service providers will have fine-grained control over load and therefore costs across the network. This offers the potential to significantly reduce the overall costs while ensuring fast availability of services towards end users.

The FMI ecosystem will allow FLAME to experiment, improve and extend the capabilities of the platform, through personalised, participatory media; collaborative, interactive transmedia narratives; and location-based augmented reality; and more. This will be enabled through the FLAME platform’s “PIML” characteristics that provide a quality of experience (QoE) oriented focus for the design and realisation of digital media services running on the FLAME platform.
