    Semantic image and video adaptation for mobile device access

Recent proliferation of mobile devices with video capture and display 
capabilities has resulted in a paradigm shift trends in video coding, 
processing, and adaptation. One major challenge in mobile media access 
is the adaptation of digital image and video for mobile devices with 
limited display sizes. Intelligent adaptation based on content semantics 
can provide much better adaptation than simple resolution reduction. 
This talk will present examples in semantic adaptation of image and 
video for mobile device access based on the understanding of media 
semantics. Some detailed analysis and simulation results will be shown 
to demonstrate that innovative approaches can be designed to meet the 
technical challenges in future networked mobile media entertainment and 
applications.
