Abstract

As an effort to devise and experiment diverse types of media-oriented service compositions supported by Future Internet infrastructure, this paper introduces an attempt to build a service-oriented testbed named as FIRST@PC (Future Internet Research on Sustainable Testbed based on PC) MediaX (Media eXperiment). Following the SOA (service oriented architecture) paradigm, FIRST@PC MediaX targets a flexible and cost-effective testing environment where media-oriented service compositions are flexibly realized on top of virtualized computing/networking resources. In this paper we will discuss on-going efforts on designing and building this testbed with several PC-based devices for media acquisition, media processing, display (networked tiled display), and networking. Specially, the preliminary implementation of agent-based software toolkit called as OMX (Open Media eXperiment for service composition) is explained and verified by testing a HD-media service scenario that combines multiple HD videos.
