Project Colourcast

This project is looking into the multimedia support of heterogeneous communication devices with varying computing power and display size. Heterogeneous devices, an increasing number of multimedia users and the fact that spectrum is not unlimited poses a significant challenge for the multimedia 

distribution systems. In this project we will investigate how to support heterogeneous devices using a minimal amount of spectrum and reducing the energy consumption on network and mobile side. The key enablers to overcome the aforementioned problems are scalable source coding, network coding, and user cooperation.
