Summary: Multimedia has definitely enriched and reshaped our daily life and experiences. Particularly, the ever increasing popularity of digital TV demands more innovative multimedia techniques. HDTV will increasingly converge with computer and be the ultimate platform for consuming multimedia information such as video-on-demand system, intelligent authoring, e-Health etc. In order to make this happen, many issues in multimedia computing, production, management and distribution need to be solved. Meanwhile, more value added services should be identified. This application seeks funding to set up an HDTV based multimedia studio to investigate the above issues and to facilitate the development of various techniques and applications for digital TV.
