Design and Implementation of a Wireless Handheld Multimodal Digital Video Library Client System Sam K. S. Sze Henry K. P. Choi Feb 27 2002 Group Meeting
Abstract We have developed a client system for accessing a multimodal digital video library (DVL) namely, iVIEW. It provides a user interface that meets the challenge of rich multimodal information presentation on wireless handheld device. An XML schema is employed to organize the multimodal metadata. Furthermore, we investigated a context awareness mechanism complementary to the XML schema to facilitate scalable degradation under restricted resources in wireless application environment.
Introduction Evolving DVL technologies Common challenges for wireless handheld device application development Challenges for implementing wireless digital video library client system
Introduction: Evolving DVL Technologies Multimodal information extraction and organization. The modals includes: speech, on-screen characters, geographical locations, names, faces, on- screen objects … Internet access Wireless access at anytime and anywhere
Introduction: Common Challenges of Wireless Handheld Devices Limitations Inherited from Hardware Screen Size Input Device (Pen device) CPU Power Memory Battery Life Bandwidth Limitations

iVIEW Client: iVIEW Client System Development The iVIEW Client has been developed in several approaches: As a Microsoft Windows Native Application using Visual Basic as the frontend with a number of Visual C++ DLLs. (CMU version, Michael Christel) Further extended to support both English and Chinese. (April 2001, Sam) As a Java Applet for internet access using internal frames (Jacky FYP). Extended to support Real and Quicktime streaming, XML message parsing (August 2001, Sunny, Sam). As a web page for internet access using Dynamic HTML and ASP. (December 2001, Sam). Wireless …

iVIEW Wireless Client: Gracefully Degradation at Multimodal Presentation
iVIEW Wireless Client: Gracefully Degradation at Multimodal Presentation A set modal significance order chain (i.e. S(m 1 ) > S(m 2 ) > S(m 3 )> …) should also be defined for different video types. If system utilization saturates, the dispatch will be signaled to make a decision to stop dispatching a set of active modal of least significance. Mathematically,
Conclusion A wireless DVL client system, that meets the challenges of handling complex multimodal presentations in a handheld device, had been developed. We had shown a user interface design that allow flexible content selection, result set refinement in different views that fits the pen computing operation profile, and it also equips the capability of high complexity multimodal presentation. We define a multimodal presentation XML with its corresponding context aware scalable degrade mechanism that optimizes the presentation content under resources limited and fluctuating environment.
