In this paper we detail why we think there is no satisfactory multimedia system for mobile phones running Java mobile edition. We also explicit what are for us the main issues when designing a multimedia system dedicated to the Java platform on embedded systems and we propose a solution for implementing a fast and powerful multimedia player, based on the 2D part of MPEG-4 BIFS and including ECMAScript support. Then we describe our J2ME implementation and how its functionality and performances can be used to create an innovative TV service. Finally, we introduce some ways of improvement with 3D support and basic augmented reality functionality.
