Pre-tests & Final Demonstration
The SkyMedia project will culminate in a final demonstration of the complete system during Turin Marathon 2012, when the SkyMedia system will be used to deliver to the audience a richer and more complete multimedia experience.
In order to pre-test a set of key technologies and to get a preliminary feedback from end users, two large scale pre-tests have been organised in the same scenario where the final project demonstration will take place.
The project has already carried out the first technological pre-test during the 25th Marathon of Turin, Turin Marathon 2011, when a subset of technologies have been tested. These subsystems will be further integrated for the 2012 “Tutta Dritta” 10km race.
The SkyMedia system will be used to deliver to the audience a richer and more complete multimedia experience, during and after the race.
A group of amateur runners will be involved in the demonstration: they will bring wearable sensors that will allow to follow runners' physical parameters during the race.
A special group of audience will be selected amongst sponsors, VIP, press and business partners and will be involved in different aspects of the event giving them access to exclusive content.
A group of spectators will be allowed to follow the race from their smartphones or from HD or 3D screens which will be deployed along the marathon course.
