Abstract

Current trends in smart homes suggest that several multimedia services will soon converge towards common standards and platforms. However this rapid evolution gives rise to several issues related to the management of a large number of multimedia streams in the home communication infrastructure. An issue of particular relevance is how a context acquisition system can be used to support the management of such a large number of streams with respect to the Quality of Service (QoS), to their adaptation to the available bandwidth or to the capacity of the involved devices, and to their migration and adaptation driven by the userspsila needs that are implicitly or explicitly notified to the system. Under this scenario this paper describes the experience of the INTERMEDIA project in the exploitation of context information to support QoS, migration, and adaptation of multimedia streams.
