Special Issue on Special issue on Multimedia Processing over Mobile Cloud

Recent advances in smartphones and wireless technologies are fuelling a new wave of user demands for rich mobile experiences. Mobile users not only expect a broadband connection wherever they go and interact with each other via social networks on the go, but also demand ubiquitous access to a wealth of video contents and services. The emerging cloud computing paradigm offers a natural solution to extend the desktop visual experience to mobile devices.

The synergy between image/video and cloud computing requires novel solutions to address many technical challenges arising in this exciting space. For example, the fundamental tension between resource-hungry video applications and power-limited mobile devices has yet to be resolved, and is complicated by operating mobile devices as access points. Effort for providing a universal rich video experience across many screens is typically limited by the heterogeneity amongst ever-evolving mobile devices, as manifested in their different physical form factors, middleware platforms, and interactive features, and rapidly-changing networking technologies (e.g., WiFi, WiMesh, 3G/4G/5G, LTE, SDN, NDN). In the back-end, video processing, distribution, adaptation and analytics need to be revisited under this new paradigm, to best serve the mobile clients with good QoS/QoE at a low cost.

In this special issue, Scientists/Researchers/Students/Other Scholar are invited, to submit their novel, innovative original research and extensive review articles that study the state-of-the-art interactions among advanced mobile video technologies, cloud computing, mobility and social network.
