Networking of MPEG-4 content is the topic of ongoing standardization efforts in the ISO MPEG and IETF. In this paper, we describe a complete architecture for the transport of MPEG-4 content over the Internet. The MPEG-4 concept of separation between applications and delivery mechanism is preserved. The use of well-established Internet protocols, such as the(More)
In this paper we study the problem of how to maximize the throughput of the disk subsystem in a Video-on-Demand server based on a PC running Linux. The system also tries to minimize costs, so it is using ATA hard disks in a RAID configuration. A disk pump is responsible for retrieving high bandwidth streams (MPEG-2) from the storage subsystem. The disk pump(More)
Bandwidth is a scarce resource on the Internet. In today's applications, video streaming is an important multimedia application. Especially after the emergence of MPEG-4 video standard, video streaming applications are expected to grow [7]. But there is always a trade-off between quality of video and bandwidth allocation for video streaming over the(More)
Networking of MPEG-4 content is the topic of standardization efforts in the ISO MPEG and IETF. DMIF (Delivery Multimedia Integration Framework) was developed in the ISO MPEG as a generic networking platform for MPEG-4 content. In this paper we are describing the implementation of a MPEG-4 client-server architecture, uses DMIF with Internet RTSP (Real Time(More)
COMIQS (Commerce through MPEG-4 on the Internet with Quality of Service) is a project within the EU ACTS (Advanced Communication Technologies and Services) program in which Digital Media Institute is a partner. COMIQS will develop complete system consisting of a media server, networking based on DMIF (Delivery Multimedia Integration Framework) with RTP and(More)
