Project description: The Jiku mobile app allows multiple users to browse, watch, zoom and pan, automated tracking of objects, record, and share video streams with others. This could be used for stored videos as well as live video stream. The app also monitors what other users like or do not like about each video clip, and recommends video clips that the user may like through a collaborative filtering algorithm. The Jiku Director system automatically analyzes input video streams of an events and generate a new video that switches between the different input streams to produce a “directed” video stream of the event based on the interestingness of the content and the quality of the input streams.
