Smart mobile devices such as camera phones typically will be carried by people all the time. These devices are true “multimedia” devices that acquire, process, transmit and present text, image, video and audio data using both media input (camera and other sensors) and output (screen and speaker) channels. However, due to the limitations in computation, storage, display, and camera, multimedia applications and systems have not been adequately supported on mobile devices. Recently, the rapid development along the following aspects largely mitigated these limitations: (1) Cloud computing, which solves both the bottle neck of computation and storage; (2) large and high-resolution display (more and more mobile devices are equipped with high-resolution LED); (3) 3G and WiFi, which solves the bandwidth issue; (4) high-quality cameras; (5) more informative sensors like GPS, gravity sensor, compass, etc; (6) More powerful CPU. With these developments, it is now the prime time for us to realize intelligent mobile device centered multimedia applications with the support of a cloud computing platform.
In particular, the support of cloud computing platform has become an essential factor especially for scalable and connected mobile multimedia technologies, applications and systems, due to its powerful support on computation, storage and networking. The focus of this workshop is on exploring challenges and opportunities of intelligent multimedia technologies, applications and systems on mobile devices, especially when a media cloud computing platform can be appropriately leveraged.
