Research In Motion
The rapid growth in interactive multimedia applications, such as video telephonic, video games and TV broadcasting have resulted in spectacular strides in the progress of wireless communication systems. The current Third Generation (3G) wireless systems and the Fourth Generation (4G) wireless systems in planning support higher bit rates. However the high error rates and stringent delay constraints in wireless systems are still significant obstacles for these applications and services. On the other hand, the development of more advanced wireless systems provides opportunities for proposing novel wireless multimedia protocols and new applications and services that can take the maximum advantage of the systems.
