Storisphere is a storytelling system developed at Lancaster University which allows a group of disparate users to produce stories collaboratively from shared video clips on various types of user devices and networks.
Storisphere encompasses the four essential functions including an integrated content and metadata management system (Mediaplex), a media asset referencing system (MARS), a unified user interface (Storiboard) and a content networking framework (SCN) to form a complete eco-system for story telling. Each function is designed to address specific challenges in content retrieval, story making and consumption, and copyright management. Although Storisphere is a comprehensive system with many advanced features integrated, most of the background operations such as content analysis, smart caching and quality adaptation are carried out without human intervention. Users interact with the Storisphere system via the Storiboard web interface which is accessible on various types of user devices.
