Bibliographic note

This paper describes C Space: community or communication spaces which is a future-facing social networking proposal and part of a large European Union Information, Society and Technology (IST) funded research project called CISMUNDUS (Convergence of IP-based Services for Mobile Users and Networks in DVB-T and UMTS Systems) exploring the convergence of mobile phone technology and digital broadcast in mobile devices. C Space is a series of user mediated, virtual reality environments that are location aware and situated within specific geographical locations (for example a park or city square) by data-casting to mobile devices using DVB-T (terrestrial digital TV) technology, in essence this is a system that allows the broadcasting of virtual reality environments that overlay specific geographical areas and are accessed through a portable (PDA-like) terminal. The aim of CISMUNDUS was to design, make and field test devices and services that exploit the possibilities of combining DVB-T (terrestrial digital TV) with UMTS (3G telecom technology) in mobile devices. This project had a total funding '8.1 million ('4.3m of which came from industrial partners including Philips Research, IRT, RYE and France Telecom).
