    Abstract

    The vision of making any multimedia content to be always accessible to every mobile user over the network is great challenge. There are two major obstacles. First, the network capacity limits the amount and the quality of multimedia content that can be made available to every user at each time instant. Secondly, it is extremely difficult for the user to browse and search for the desired content from the huge multimedia library that is available. The work in this paper aims to address these obstacles to a certain extent. In order to overcome the adverse effect of the bandwidth limitation on the quality and quantity of the delivered multimedia content, we propose using the SVC and adaptive layered streaming approach. The second problem is addressed by utilizing context-aware personal content adaptation and efficient metadata processing to reduce the burden of user navigation in the large pool of media content. A proof-of-concept prototype that integrates the two technologies was developed. Cross country test trials were conducted to demonstrate the capabilities and practical use cases of the integrated context-aware scalable multimedia content delivery system for heterogeneous mobile devices.
