Active Multimedia Documents for Mobile Services



O E. Kia


Multimedia content is designed for many purposes and the services that are associated with them rely heavily on technologies that address representation, processing, and transmission of that content. This paper presents a new model that refines the multimedia documents for mobile environments while integrating information technology components to address strict requirements. We present new ways to structure and represent the multimedia content to fit into the traditional document framework so that we can serve the document for an alternative presentation ordering, cross-media translation, and scalable renditions. We propose techniques that utilize the structure of documents across several levels in a manner that applies semantic description to provide scalable multimediaservices. A modern multimedia document consumption scenario is introduced where a mobile collaborative working is demonstrated utilizing the proposed techniques.
