Mobile-Centric Approach for Mediating and Controlling Distributed Digital Content


Consumer electronics (CE) devices equipped with Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) functionality are finding their way to consumers' homes. As these devices start including more advanced functionality such as storage capacity and online service connectivity they might become the true "media centers" of connected homes. We propose that a mobile media control device would perform intelligent content versioning and metadata caching, which enables efficient mediating of content between the Internet and the home environment. Moreover, the proposed solution could be applied in mobile advertising so that the mobile device would mediate content from online advertisers to CE devices.
