The Vconect vision is the adoption of high-quality enriched video as a medium for mass communication within communities.

Vconect is building a video communication platform which models and supports the complex communication topologies that characterise conversations between group members. The system will take intelligent decisions to mediate the communication at the level of audio-visual choices, screen layout and network capabilities.

Vconect is ensuring the wide applicability of the platform by implementing, testing and evaluating it in the context of two different use cases. The first based on the integration of video conferencing into social networking services, the second based on group mediated performance.


Vconect is a Project within the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7) and receives funding from the European Commission. The project runs for three years and will finish in November 2014.
