Delivering Multimedia Content to Automobiles Using Wireless LANs 2004-21-0004
This paper addresses technical and business issues relating to delivering multimedia content to automobiles using Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs). Content delivery in the home and hot -spots are discussed. Two key delivery mechanisms - downloading and streaming are addressed and solutions proposed to reliably deliver content over the WLAN infrastructure. A key factor is the use of efficient video compression. Recent advances in video compression will be introduced and issues relating to encoding and decoding complexity will be discussed. Solutions to security and content protection are also addressed. The paper concludes with a discussion of possible business models.
