Dynamic Stream Control for Energy Efficient Video Streaming
Gartner predicts that by 2013 mobile devices will overtake PCs as the most popular type of device used for accessing Internet-based services. Meanwhile, mobile phones are becoming increasingly complex and powerful. However, battery technology has not been increasing at the same pace and hence, there is an urgent need for solutions to balance the battery performance of mobile devices and their functionality. An efficient solution would be to analyze the application(s) running on the device and manipulate all available device parameters, in order to maximize the power saving while minimizing the effect on the Quality of Service.
