CoCam

Groups

Collaborating and media creation are difficult tasks, both for people and for network architectures. CoCam is a self-organizing network for real-time camera image collaboration. Like with all camera apps, just point and shoot; CoCam then automatically joins other media creators into a network of collaborators. Network discovery, creation, grouping, joining, and leaving is done automatically in the background, letting users focus on participation in an event. We use local P2P middleware and a 3G negotiation service to create these networks for real-time media sharing. CoCam also provides multiple views that make the media experience more exciting�such as appearing to be in multiple places at the same time. The media is immediately distributed and replicated in multiple peers; thus if a camera phone is confiscated or lost, other users have copies of the images.
