Our research group focuses on facilitating and improving the way people access media and communicate with others and with the environment. We address key problems for society and science, resulting from the dense connectivity of content, people, and devices. We use recognised scientific methods, following a full-stack, experimental, and human-centered approach.

 We base our results on realistic testing grounds and data sets, and embrace areas such as wearable technology and smart textiles, immersive media, and languages and infrastructures. Distributed and Interactive Systems is an outward-looking research group, and we enjoy a number of fruitful partnerships with companies and organisations in the areas of creative industries and smart cities.

Our group transfers knowledge through scientific publications, standards bodies, open-source implementations and consultancy. We pride ourselves on pushing boundaries, leading the way for others to follow.

CWI develops strategies for compression and transmission of reconstructed 3D data

CWI develops strategies for compression and transmission of reconstructed 3D data

Internet is used for communication via video conferencing, voice calls, chatting, photo sharing, online gaming and virtual reality. These technologies are changing our daily lives and the way we interact with each other. Highly realistic reconstructed 3D representations that combine real and synthetic contents in a virtual world will be part of this online interaction more and more.
