Modern video streaming servers should adapt, and switch quality levels of, the streamed data according to precise and timely feedback about the network conditions, and should also incorporate selective retransmissions of important reference frames (I-and P-VOPs). This paper evaluates two recent IETF Internet Drafts on RTP extensions for immediate feedback(More)
This paper introduces a Web-based guidance system which supports optimized presentations of sights or exhibited objects on different types of available stationary and mobile consumer devices, possibly running different operating systems. This is accomplished by adapting both the objects' content, as well as their presentation to the current usage context.(More)
Recommended by Harald Kosch One possibility to provide mobile multimedia in domestic multimedia systems is the use of Universal Plug and Play Audio Visual (UPnP-AV) devices. In a standard UPnP-AV scenario, multimedia content provided by a Media Server device is streamed to Media Renderer devices by the initiation of a Control Point. However, there is no(More)
— If videos are streamed over heterogeneous networks like the Internet, severe bandwidth fluctuations can emerge which hamper seamless transmission to the end user. To overcome this issue, a video's quality and, as a consequence, its bandwidth requirements can be reduced. Quality reduction in the temporal domain (i.e., frame dropping) turned out to be a(More)
Video streaming systems in best effort networks have to somehow cope with dynamically changing bandwidth. Various scal-able video codecs allow intra-stream adaptation by use of temporal , spatial, or quality (SNR) scalability; optimizations for finer grained scalability are available as layered coding and FGS techniques. However, if there is no scalable(More)
Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) is a widely accepted standard for automatically detecting devices and services in a local area network as well as for describing and controlling them. In order to deal with multimedia devices and especially content, in 2002 the UPnP-AV standard definition was released. It defines device and service descriptions for Media(More)
