GPAC is a multimedia framework for research and academic purposes in different aspects of multimedia, with a focus on presentation technologies (graphics, animation and interactivity). The project started in 2003 with the initial goal to develop from scratch, in ANSI C, clean software compliant to the MPEG-4 Systems standard, a small and flexible(More)
In recent years, audio-visual distribution over Internet has witnessed the growing usage of HTTP based delivery systems. While these systems have their drawbacks for some use-cases, they also have many advantages, the most important one being reusing the existing delivery infrastructure such as HTTP servers, proxies and caches. The MPEG group has started(More)
The delivery of multimedia content over HTTP and on top of existing Internet infrastructures is becoming the preferred method within heterogeneous environment. The basic design principle is having an intelligent client which selects given and applicable media representations by issuing HTTP requests for individual segments based on the users' context and(More)
As the newly created standard for interactive television, HbbTV (for Hybrid broadband broadcast TV), is getting traction, the problem of recording TV services takes on new dimensions with interactive and hybrid services. This paper explores the different issues raised by the recording and on-demand playback of broadcast HbbTV services containing interactive(More)
This paper presents the Spatial Representation Description (SRD) feature of the second amendment of MPEG DASH standard part 1, 23009-1:2014 [1]. SRD is an approach for streaming only spatial sub-parts of a video to display devices, in combination with the form of adaptive multi-rate streaming that is intrinsically supported by MPEG DASH. The SRD feature(More)
This paper presents a new approach that exploits existing web applications and re-purposes them towards the multi-screen environment. For this purpose, a virtual splitting system is proposed. It consists of a generalized mapping technique that, contrary to previous works, automatically analyzes the application content based on a semantic or a visual(More)
HTTP Streaming is a recent topic in multimedia communications with on-going standardization activities, especially with the MPEG DASH standard which covers on demand and live services. One of the main issues in live services deployment is the reduction of the overall latency. Low or very low latency streaming is still a challenge. In this paper, we push the(More)
—Our work focuses on the encoding of two–dimen-sional (2-D) graphics animated cartoons with MPEG-4. This stems from a need to stop encoding cartoons as videos and to start using methods more adapted to animated 2-D vector graphics sequences. We expected this could be an efficient coding with good versatility for various types of terminals. First, we present(More)
— The seamless access to rich multimedia content on any device and over any network, usually known as Universal Multimedia Access, requires interoperable description tools and adaptation techniques to be developed. To address this, MPEG-21 introduces an adaptation framework, which provides several mechanisms for making adaptation decisions according to(More)
