Outline l.jpg

  • Discussion points in this talk

    • What are practical examples of media-oriented service composition experiment (towards immersive future media services)?

      • Multimedia Service Composition, Visual Sharing, IMS, RealCast for realistic broadcasting, ...?

    • What is the proper term that expresses immersive future media services based on composable services? (In this talk, the term “Service-Based Media Applications” is used temporally.)

  • Problem statement

    • Designing testbed platform, mainly focusing on experiment control

  • Problem definition

    • OMX Toolkit development, integrating Java-based software agents, TB management tools, virtualization tools, and measurement tools.

  • Solution

    • TBD

Towards immersive future media services l.jpg
Towards Immersive Future Media Services

  • Personal needs about immersive media services are growing.

  • Using widely dispersed media contents and tools, flexible media systems are necessary.

  • Service orientation is a driving force to instantaneously and flexibly build value-added multimedia applications on top of composable services in the Internet.

Referring to “Why do we need a content-centric future internet?” created by the Future Content Networks Group, May 2009.

Service based media applications by service composition paradigm l.jpg
Service-Based Media Applications by Service Composition Paradigm

  • A media application reuses individual media services to form new and complex process in a time-/cost-aware manner.

  • A media service is a functional entity that assists processing and communication of media streams.

Towards service oriented testbed for media experiment support l.jpg
Towards Service-Oriented Testbed for Media Experiment Support

  • Dynamic service composition by applications

    • Dynamically compose services depending on the functional relationship among services and handle events of testbed

  • Service and resource adaptation combined with monitoring

    • Monitor resource utilization and adapt services accordingly

    • Dynamically adapt resources according to the requests of a service

Construct an extended testbed supporting complicated service composition and stable operation through extended tools for service control and management

Background l.jpg
Background Support

  • Designing service-oriented testbeds needs to consider several aspects:

    • On the testbed designed for supporting media processing and delivery and testbed control framework to operate the testbed,

    • We need service control framework to assist experimenters in development and testing of service composition methodologies by using testbed capabilities

  • Composing individual services according to dynamic context changing

  • Guiding the design, development, deployment, operation and retirement of services delivered by a service provider

  • Integrating heterogeneous resources and providing them
