Looking to 2010: Video to Immersive Participatory Networking
As we close out 2009, recall that in one of my blogs, March 11 2009, I wrote about teleportation.
It was no surprise for me that one of the top 50 inventions for the year 2009 cited by Time Magazine, Inc., was Teleportation, in the context of quantum information processing itself.
Video whether consumer generated over the Internet via a Flip High Definition/Ultra High Definition Videocam, or via business interactive, e.g. TelePresence, is evolving to be even more interactive and personal. Think about a “participatory” event like a commercial such that you become part of the advertising experience; or a sport venue like a baseball game where you are in the game and so on. The possibilities of 4 dimensional holographic spaces where individuals can indeed immerse themselves in a participatory cyber-space with other individuals.
What are the consequences for the network?
No doubt with such real time applications, aside from the generated traffic itself, assuring service quality e.g quality of service will be very key moving forward.
Moving to 2010, I am truly excited about the technology opportunities to create the immersive participatory experience beyond video!
