Media Technology Projects

58 students in 12 teams

CS3283 and CS3284 are two modules on the development of media technology systems such as interactive systems, games, retrieval systems, multimedia computing applications, etc. Students will form project teams to work on media technology projects. This first part focuses on the analysis of the user's needs, formulation of the computing requirements of the desired solution that meets the user's needs, design of the systems according to the requirements, implementation of first-cut prototype for evaluation purpose, and evaluation of the design.

Bill.eGoat: Automated Management of Bills and Statements

A person who scans his phone bills/medical bills/banks statements often ends up manually filing the physical/scanned copies. The sheer volume of bills to manually organise, the lack of ease in cross-referencing and analysing bills across a time period and other problems lead to unnecessary financial errors, such as late payment of bills. The bills/statements from one organization, however, typically have the same layout and format while using standard fonts. Hence, it is possible to read information, such as billing amounts, from soft-copy bills and summarize them (e.g., show a chart of phone usage month-over-month). Bill.eGoat is the first automated bill manager available which allows users to upload bills via web or email and have their bills sorted and presented in useful formats - such as charts which analyse billing patterns. Bill.eGoat can easily be used by one and all in a quick and painless fashion, seeking to remove the hindrance of bill management, tracking and analysis from people’s daily lives.

CloudyGame: Cloud-Gaming Friendly Game Engine

Current cloud gaming implementation does not efficiently utilize server memory. The main issue is asset-sharing between game instances. Traditionally, a new instance of game will be created for each player in the server, resulting in unnecessary usage of space, especially RAM. To overcome this problem , we re-architect an existing game engine (the system used to run games) to meet the needs of cloud gaming. We do this by allowing multiple players to share an instance of a single-player game. These players will not be able to interact with each other, although some assets will still be shared. This helps in increasing the efficiency of cloud gaming, reducing the operating costs and allowing more players into the cloud gaming market. With this, everyone can enjoy games requiring high computational power and resources. We believe that this is the future of gaming.

SuperStreamer: Game Engine with Progressive Content Streaming

The objective of this project is to develop a game engine that supports progressive downloading of game contents (a.k.a file streaming). The team should come up with game engine design and specifications/API for developers of game content/game, implement the design by modifying any existing open source game engine, and develop a common thin client called Gamelet (may be, plug-in for browser), which can download the game contents on demand and allows game play of any game built with the game engine.
