The scalability of a computer system is its response to growth. It is also depends on its hardware, its operating system and the applications it is running. Most distributed systems technology today still depends on bus-based shared memory which do not scale well, and systems based on the grid or hypercube scheme requires significantly less connections than a full inter-connection that would exhibit a quadratic growth rate. The rapid convergence of mobile communication, digital broadcasting and network infrastructures calls for rich multimedia content that is adaptive and responsive to the needs of individuals, businesses and the public organisations This paper discusses the emergence of mobile multimedia systems and provides an overview of the issues regarding design and delivery of multimedia content to mobile devices.
