Modern applications for mobile devices, such as multimedia video/audio, often exhibit a common behavior: they process streams of incoming data in a regular, predictable way. The runtime behavior of these applications can be accurately estimated most of the time by analyzing the data to be processed and annotating the stream with the information collected. The authors introduce a software annotation based approach to power optimization and demonstrate its application on a backlight adjustment technique for LCD displays during multimedia playback, for improved battery life and user experience.
