In this paper we address the research issues in providing personalized multimedia services, which enable a mobile user to remotely record video programs, control cameras, and request the delivery of pre-recorded or live video content to his or her own mobile device. We describe a mobile service platform that authenticates users who send service requests from various mobile devices, transcodes video content based on user and device profiles, and authorizes the delivery of content from a media server to the proper client device. The media server adapts automatically to the fluctuations of the wireless channel conditions for reasonable viewing on the client device. The mobile service platform essentially manages the control path, while the media server handles the actual content delivery. We discuss various aspects of the integration and report our successful experiments conducted on wireless LAN and CDPD networks.
