Fostering mobile broadcast

C-MOBILE was a mobile broadcast and multicast technology project. The goal was to build a more flexible multicasting architecture, enhance content management workflow, develop new applications and content formats and contribute to multicasting technology evolution and standards.

C-Mobile developed multicasting services, including end-to-end services, from content provider to end-user. The result on the content side was the development of content casting formats with podcasting content and interactive TV formats with streaming content. Services in the content provider use case included the implementation of an electronic programming guide for streaming content using playlists. A voting application for streaming content allowed interactivity with the user, using user input for on-the-fly content selection.

Deutsche Welle was a user partner and contributed to news use case, validation and dissemination.

The project ran from Mar 2006 – Feb 2008

New interactive online formats and delivery models

SMARTCAST’s main objective was to support broadcasters in their transition towards IP based media production and distribution.

SMARTCAST thus developed an Integrated Multimedia Production line for interactive audiovisual content and a satellite broadband delivery platform based on IP web casting services.

Deutsche Welle co-ordinated the project and – together with broadcasters ORF (AUT) and Radio Bremen (D) – developed various interactive content formats that were produced with Smartcast’s Integrated Production Line as developed by project partner Lost Boys Interactive (NL) and distributed through the satellite platform as developed by Eutelsat (F). On top of coordination and content format development Deutsche Welle team was in charge of validation and dissemination.
