Recent advances in video coding technology like the scalable extension of the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 video coding standard pave the way for computationally cheap adaptation of video content. In this paper we present our work on a lightweight RTSP/RTP proxy that enables in-network stream processing. Based on an off-the-shelf wireless router that runs a Linux-based(More)
—Content adaptation is an important issue of multi-media frameworks in order to achieve universal multimedia access (UMA), i.e., to enable consumption of multimedia content independently of the given resource limitations, terminal capabilities, and user preferences. The digital item adaptation (DIA) standard, one of the core specifications of the MPEG-21(More)
In order to enable transparent and convenient use of multi-media content across a wide range of networks and devices, content adaptation is an important issue within multimedia frameworks. The so called Digital Item Adaptation (DIA) standard is one of the core concepts of the MPEG-21 framework that will support the adaptation of multimedia resources(More)
—The amount of audiovisual data available on the Internet and thus of multimedia communication over today's networks is increasing at a rapid pace. Despite the availability of specific media transport protocols like RTP, most content providers make use of the well-established and reliable TCP protocol to deliver audiovisual content over the Internet. The(More)
Providing transparent and augmented use of multimedia content across a wide range of networks and devices is still a challenging task within the multimedia research community. Multimedia adaptation was figured out as a core concept to overcome this issue. Most multimedia adaptation engines for providing Universal Multimedia Access (UMA) scale the content(More)
Supporting transparent delivery and convenient use of multimedia content across a wide range of networks and devices is still a challenging task within the multimedia research community; Universal Multimedia Access (UMA) is a vision that has been pursued for quite some time. In multimedia frameworks, content adaptation is the core concept to make progress(More)
