Paper Abstract

One of the major challenges in digital, interactive television is to provide facilities for an intelligent multimedia presentation at the consumer terminal. The end-user shall benefit from a web-page like structure, whose content is browsable, rather than one monolithic broadcast stream without either any interaction facilities or content adaptation models. Therefore we introduce a Digital Broadcast Item (DBI) that structures the broadcast content into an interactable intelligent multimedia presentation: along the push content (broadcast stream) consisting of a video/audio stream adaptive content elements are streamed by the help of binarized metadata streaming solutions and synchronized to the audio/video stream. As far broadcasting only provided content as monolithic structure, composed of an image flow, graphics, special effects, sound effects, single path story flow, etc. The transport medium utilized is a high-bit rate MPEG-2 Transport Stream (MPEG-2 TS) carrying audio/video and some low level metadata, such as an Electronic Programme Guide (EPG).The aim of this research paper is to show and prove the concept of realizing adaptive content customisation for white pre-marked rectangular areas in multiple orientations.
