A Solution for Partial Video Voice Over IP Session Transfer and Retrieval
Ubiquitous digital devices with rich media processing and networking capabilities open an avenue for enriching user experiences, especially in video voice over IP communication sessions because a communication session can be transferred partially to multiple devices that are in the vicinity of caller and (or) callee. Then, the transferred partial session can be retrieved back to the original place. For supporting partial video voice session transfer and retrieval, the solution needs a proper orchestration for the media channels. However, existing media orchestration mechanisms are separately and independently deployed on the user side (i.e. user agent) and network side (i.e. application server); thus, they increase the development and deployment complexity.
