Abstract

The motivation for the virtual device is to facilitate the seamless use of application services residing on different devices in the vicinity of the user. Due to heterogeneity of devices in the user's pervasive environment, multiple potential combinations to support a required task may exist. This work aims to determine the best possible media services considering all instances. The best services are selected and composed to satisfy a user task. Recent works propose using user preferences, environment capabilities and similarity between requested and available services to determine service fitness. We consider potential local and remote content sources and destination devices, with similarity, user preferences and environment capabilities to determine fitness. Services are selected for composition based on fitness. We model and simulate this issue and explain the results of our experimentation. Optimal multimedia service composition from varying devices provides the user with the best possible multimedia consumption and production experience.
