Abstract
We present the design, implementation and performance analysis of a multimedia management system for home environments. It enables comprehensive access and control of media that is distributed over multiple devices. Based on automatic discovery of the media servers and renderers (i.e. audio or display devices) through UPnP, our application integrates all content in a single view (merging content and/or removing duplicate items). The application is tailored to a mobile platform and features a context aware platform to automatically select the nearest display device. Adaptive content filtering can be applied to restrict the list to content supported by this device. Performance measurements on a proof of concept implementation are presented.
