Paper Abstract

In this paper, we describe new content authoring issues related to mobility and cross-platform multimedia systems. We present the novel architecture for Content Provider Interface (CPI), which provides the necessary tools for creation and delivery of mobile multimedia services across heterogeneous environments. CPI is a fully implemented system and set of tools for creating and updating new multimedia services delivered via a mobile adaptive multimedia service platform called Princess. CPI is based on an object-oriented database for editing and storing media objects, which are interpreted to service catalogs and presentations. Additionally, CPI is capable of creating rich notifications to the system to dynamically report content updates and allows users to create and use templates to establish new media objects, combine databases and preview presentations outside the service platform. The proposed approach addresses the requirements and difficulties of the cross-platform multimedia systems by integrating data management, service logic and modular service/presentation design together in a unique way with dynamic content updates and notification features, as well as user group management.
