From Theory to Practice in Wireless Multimedia Delivery
In this talk, I will describe two of my recent work that address the problem of efficiently delivering multimedia content over cellular networks. In particular, the first part of the talk focuses on content-aware networking, that is, how one could exploit the structure of the video content to design adaptive content-aware protocols that are distortion-fair rather than just bandwidth-fair. The second part of the talk focuses on the related issue of generating network-aware content by leveraging video compressibility, consumer usage patterns, and monthly quota. On both these topics, I will present some implementation details on software defined radios, Android devices, as well as real-world trial results obtained from Princeton community volunteers.
