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(More)
BACKGROUND Local anaesthetics and vasoconstrictors are essential for pain control and to aid intra-operative haemostasis in nasal procedures. They also improve access, and reduce discomfort when performing nasal endoscopy. There are no clear guidelines on preparing the nose despite evermore diagnostic and therapeutic procedures utilising the nose as a point(More)
This paper surveys components that are useful to build programmable, predictable, composable, and scalable multiprocessor-system-on-a-chip (MPSoC) multimedia platforms that can deliver high performance at high power-efficiency. A design-time tool flow is proposed to exploit all forms of parallelism on such platforms. As a first proof of concept, the flow is(More)
One of the key functionalities in today's multimedia applications is streaming. However unlike video, streaming 3D content remains rare, especially for textures. In this paper, we present an intelligent, view-dependent approach for streaming and decoding MPEG-4 textures in order to save network and platform resources, while minimizing the perceived quality(More)
In modern multimedia applications, scalability is a key functionality that allows transmission and representation of contents in a wide variety of networks and terminals. In order to obtain full advantage of scalability features, techniques for detailed description and transformation of multimedia contents are needed. In this paper, the Bitstream Syntax(More)
As the utilization of multiprocessors system-on-chip (MPSoC) is becoming ubiquitous, demands for effective allocation and scheduling techniques are needed more than ever to harness the power of MPSoCs. An MPSoC is a system consisting of multiple heterogeneous processing cores, memory hierarchies, and communication infrastructure to effectively overcome the(More)
