Descriptive Keywords:

Multimedia authoring, context-driven authoring, semi-automatic multimedia content creation.

Potential Use and Applications:

Context-driven creation of multimedia content.

General Description:

In recent years, many highly sophisticated multimedia authoring tools have been developed. Up to today, these system’s integration of the targeted user context, however, is limited. With our Context-aware Smart Multimedia Authoring Tool (xSMART) we developed a semi-automatic authoring tool that integrates the targeted user context into the different authoring steps and exploits this context to guide the author through the content authoring process. The design of xSMART allows that it can be extended and customized to the requirements of a specific domain by domain-specific wizards. These wizards realize the user interface that meets best the domain-specific requirements and effectively supports the domain experts in creating their content targeted at a specific user context.

Required User Skills:

Basics in using tools like Microsoft PowerPoint.

Pre-Requisites for Installation:

Software: Java Runtime Environment

Conditions of use:

Contact the authors.
