Implementation of a mobile MPEG-21 peer
The MPEG-21 Multimedia Framework aims to realize interoperable access to content across heterogeneous networks and devices. Within the Framework, the concept of Digital Items is introduced as a structured digital representation for multimedia. To demonstrate the applicability of MPEG-21 to seamless multimedia interactions on limited platforms, the authors have produced an implementation of MPEG-21 for a mobile device, in Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME). This paper examines the design and implementation of the Mobile MPEG-21 Peer, including a specialized architecture and processing mechanisms specific to the J2ME platform.
