Integrating Building Product Models with Live Video Stream

Abstract: Various Building Information Models (BIMs) are increasingly used for data sharing and communication purposes in real estate and construction sector. This change can be seen as part of more general development where the main target is wide integration infrastructure to handle user interaction, business process, applications and data. Besides of new achievements in BIM technologies the described general development is enabled in an interesting manner by the overall technological integration that is bringing together traditional IT, telecommunication, Internet, TV and radio technologies and entertainment business. The resultant solutions have already changed clearly our working environment, its processes and business, and, more even radical changes are likely to appear. This paper shall present a research project addressing combination of building product models with live video stream applications. The research project named '4D Live' explores hardware, middleware and software platforms for the named purpose whilst the main target is to study emerging new sector specific business processes and changes arising from these solutions. 4D Live project is producing several demonstrative solutions where building models are combined with live video stream from one or several digital video cameras: i) Live internet based 4D, ii) Augmented reality web camera, and iii) Multi-Camera studio for BIM-Human interaction.

Keywords: BIM, building product models, augmented reality, visualizations
