Automatic adaptation of streaming multimedia content in a dynamic and distributed environment

Automatic adaptation of streaming multimedia content in a dynamic and distributed environment
The diversity of end-terminal and access network capabilities as well as the dynamic nature of wireless connections pose significant challenges to providers of multimedia streaming services. In this paper, we present a system based on MPEG-21 Digital Item Adaptation (DIA) technologies that automatically adapts scalable multimedia resources, like upcoming MPEG-4 Scalable Video Coding (SVC) streams, in a generic and transparent way to the user and session context. This context includes terminal and network capabilities as well as user characteristics. A server side adaptation engine reacts to context changes by dynamic decision taking and accordingly modified bitstream adaptation. Furthermore, novel concepts are presented that facilitate multimedia adaptation in a distributed fashion along the delivery path.
