Mobile video will more than double every year between 2010 and 2015. However, mobile users demand more sophisticated multimedia services for seamless multimedia experience with features like real-time sharing collaboration, easy navigation. Mobile cloud computing is current trending approach that can overcome some of the mentioned problems.

Within the UMIC and Learning Layers Projects, the objective of this thesis project is to integrate and further develop existing multimedia services for mobile and web clients. The framework especially deals with problems like being capable of receiving video streams, processing in the cloud, and delivering of value-added video services together with object recognition results. It should also be scalable and easy extendable, enable collaborative video creation and consumption and improve the capabilities of metadata annotation in videos through the use of object recognition methods.

The candidate should have a basic knowledge and interest in Web and mobile (Android) development. The candidate should also have interest in working with next-generation Web technologies such as HTML5, video streaming, Web Sockets, and XMPP and cloud frameworks such as Hadoop and Map Reduce.
