SEAmless Content Delivery

Project description


Networked Media
SEA (SEAmless Content Delivery) aims to offer a new experience of seamless video delivery, maintaining the integrity and, wherever applicable, adapting and enriching the quality of the media across the whole distribution chain.

In the forthcoming age, where everyone may be content producer, mediator and consumer, SEA aims to offer a new experience of personalised, seamless content delivery, maintaining the integrity and wherever applicable, enriching the perceived QoS (PQoS) of the media across the whole distribution chain. SEA is a project focused on seamless, personalised, trusted and PQoS-optimised multimedia content delivery, across broadband networks, varying from broadcasting to P2P topologies.
SEA motivation is to implement a context-aware networking delivery platform, by focusing on four key principles:
- Multi-layered/-viewed content coding, considering the evolving H.264 SVC/MVC and their emerging successors, as the major foreseen delivery technologies over heterogeneous networks/terminals and large audiences.
- Multi-source/-network content streaming offering on-the fly content adaptation, increased scalability and enriched PQoS by dynamically combining content layers or representations of the same resource, transmitted from multiple sources and/or received over multiple networks.
- Cross-network/-layer optimisation. The network/terminal heterogeneity, also engaging P2P overlays and serving different quality and views will require cross-layer optimization, traffic adaptation and optimal use of the available network/terminal resources.
- Content Protection. A hybrid solution for personalised content protection by means of a combination of streaming encryption, content protection and rights management for new media, covering not only the legacy content creation chain, but also the private multimedia content.
SEA will test/validate the developed technologies over three interconnected tedbeds: a) a real-time emulated lab, b) a world-wide extended P2P testbed (PlanetLab) and c) a real 2G+/3G/4G/WLAN mobile trial.
SEA will eventually provide citizens with the means to offer personalized A/V user-centric services, improving their quality of life, entertainment and safety.
