In this paper, we present an adaptive wireless IPTV development platform which provides a cost-effective and realistic environment for testing and developing adaptive video transmission technologies and services. We describe the components of the platform and give examples of how the platform has been used. The platform supports adaptive video delivery to mobile users in various networks, e.g., WLAN, WiMAX, and 3G. Furthermore, the platform includes support for managing client mobility and quality of service (QoS). The environment comprises of a controlled laboratory environment including a network emulator as well as actual networks with wide coverage and regular users.
