Due to sharp increase in the number of video recording devices, the digital multimedia can be produced at many sources and can be injected at most different places into a fully distributed and multimodal environment. The large amount of multimedia data is produced and consumed in most different quality, with most different aims and requirements. The aim of the project is apply formal and combinatorial optimisation methods in the development of novel distribution layer for multimedia delivery considering the above video usage pattern.

The PC glasses contain the computer in a case with sunshield form which does not obstruct the view. There is a simplified user interface on its upper shield with four buttons for paging, searching and switching books, films and files stored in the memory. The display units located below the eye-level present a distant and large-size virtual image in the bottom part of the field of vision. The image can be viewed by glancing downwards at a comfortable reading angle; therefore, the horizontal view has no obstacle.

1 Dec 2007– 28 Feb 2010

The aim of the Innovative eLearning Tool for Quality Training Material in VET (IQTool) project is to develop an open source software tool integrated in LMS(s), which is suitable to assess the teaching quality management of eLearning training programs and training materials for supporting the application of the quality measurement tool for institutions dealing with vocational training and which therefore can promote the establishment and development of quality culture. The project implementation integrates testing of software and pilot training of the training material as well.

1 Jan – 31 Dec

The main objective of the program is to establish the network of resource centers of education and experts - the New Media Knowledge Villages - for integrated digital TV and web developments that are based on the "TV anywhere-anytime" model. The convergence of the internet and broadcasting offers the opportunity of developing new values and new, high quality content within the area of education services. The project exploits the training opportunity that is offered by the integration of the internet and digital TV.

1 Oct 2005– 31 May 2007

CALIBRATE brings together eight Ministries of Education, (including six MoEs from new member states), leading research institutions, validation experts, technology providers and SMEs to carry out a multi-level project designed to support the collaborative use and exchange of learning objects/resources in schools.

1 Oct 2004– 30 Sep 2006

The objective of the program is to prepare reference studies that analyse the results of those research and pilot activities in the courses of which web, digital TV and mobile technology integrating eLearning solutions have been developed. "Ubiquitous learning" is the type of life-long learning that is customized to persons. It is the next generation of electronic learning. It allows easier access to courseware both in the areas of informal and non formal learning and it contributes to ensuring higher mobility for the citizens of Europe.

1 Aug 2004– 31 Jul 2007

The objective of the program is to support co-operation between research institutes that deal with the development of knowledge technology and eLearning applications, in order to facilitate the distribution of development results and their widespread utilisation. In the course of the program the partner institutes will implement researcher exchange programs, joint workshops and work discussions in the interest of exploiting the research results.

1 Feb 2003– 31 Mar 2004

The objective of the project Glocalisation is to support one of the promising segments of the Hungarian content industry, the production and "glocalisation" of multimedia-based computer training materials. Glocalisation is a nickname for localising foreign courseware and globalising that is adapting to foreign language environment Hungarian language courseware. In the interest of realizing this objective we developed a SCORM compatible glocalisation system in the framework of the project. The system was tested through a pilot training program.
