Nowadays, networks can be accessed by multiple devices with different characteristics. Some of these characteristics such as low processing power and memory capacity restrict the access to multimedia content. Researchers have then focused on making automatic system adaptations in order to present content according to devices' capabilities. Most of the works on this area include the description of hardware and software devices' features using the CC/PP specification. However, the indiscriminate and direct use of CC/PP makes it difficult to generate consistent descriptions when using the same device into different contexts. The novel of this paper is an alternative method to describe devices' features. This method aims to facilitate context-based content adaptation decisions to be made before content delivery. This paper also presents an application for content adaptation that uses our method.
