Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this study is to present a depth information-based solution for automatic camera control, depending on the presenter’s moving positions. Talks, presentations and lectures are often captured on video to give a broad audience the possibility to (re-)access the content. As presenters are often moving around during a talk, it is necessary to steer recording cameras.

Design/methodology/approach

We use depth information from Kinect to implement a prototypical application to automatically steer multiple cameras for recording a talk.

Findings

We present our experiences with the system during actual lectures at a university. We found out that Kinect is applicable for tracking a presenter during a talk robustly. Nevertheless, our prototypical solution reveals potential for improvements, which we discuss in our future work section.

Originality/value

Tracking a presenter is based on a skeleton model extracted from depth information instead of using two-dimensional (2D) motion- or brightness-based image processing techniques. The solution uses a scalable networking architecture based on publish/subscribe messaging for controlling multiple video cameras.

Abstract

Austin Rover adopted open learning as a result of fundamental and massive changes in technology, productivity and its product range. With the help of the Manpower Services Commission (MSC) open learning centres at each of Austin Rover's main manufacturing sites have been established. Each centre has work stations (comprising a computer, disk drives, printers and monitors) study benches, a video resource, an audio resource, a reference library and an administrator. The use of the computer is encouraged as a training aid to deliver, manage or test the learning process and the trainee. The cost‐effectiveness of open learning, the development of courseware and the available resources are examined. The selection of employees for courses and the staff involved are discussed. The company sees open learning as an additional method of training to those already at the disposal of trainers.
