Mobile Multimedia Cloud Computing

The rapid increase in the use of multimedia applications (e.g., video conferencing and online gaming) on mobile devices has led IT companies to evolve their technologies to cope with the multimedia requirements. Since mobile devices are inherently resource-limited, mobile cloud computing (MCC) is emerging as a promising technology to enhance the capability of mobile devices to enable rich multimedia applications. The fundamental tension between resource-hungry multimedia streams and power-limited mobile devices has to be resolved, and is complicated by novel ways of operating mobile devices as both media clients and content providers. This special issue focuses on recent advances in theory and key technologies of mobile multimedia cloud computing.
