Adaptive video streaming for embedded devices

O. Layaida, D. Hagimont
2005 IEE Proceedings - Software  
To reach the required flexibility, this framework provides support for dynamic configuration and reconfiguration of adaptations processes.  ...  In this purpose, we designed and implemented a framework for network-based adaptations of multimedia streams.  ...  In both cases, they lack a highlevel language support for describing configurations and reconfigurations.

On the Design of a SIP-Based Binding Middleware for Next Generation Home Network Services [chapter]

Mourad Alia, Andre Bottaro, Fatoumata Camara, Briac Hardouin
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Our framework is implemented as part of a context-aware adaptive middleware on top of the OSGi platform and an illustrative use case is shown.  ...  The openness of our framework is motivated by the need of constructing highly flexible home services such as context aware adaptation, session mobility, media session enrichment and QoS.  ...  A prerequisite for supporting that is to reconfigure dynamically media sessions which may involve changing the negotiated codec or yet updating the video frame quality, etc.  ...
