Benchmarking can be defined as the way to measure and compare performance metrics or business processes with the current state-of-the-art. The MARVEL framework aims at going beyond the state-of-the-art on different aspects of handling, analysing and managing heterogeneous data, especially of audio-visual (AV) nature. What are the benchmarks you apply? What about benchmarking of complex solutions? Share your ideas and let’s see collaboration flourishing!
