Technical contributions from experts in academia and industry will be looking at three key fields for movies, television, interactive programmes, online content and gaming industry: * image analysis * computer vision * computer graphics Visual media production commonly makes use of developments that are at the convergence of image/video analysis and computer graphics. Image analysis has widespread application in visual media production including editing, annotation and special effects. New techniques in visual scene analysis are now commonplace in media production and combine synthetic and real elements.
