Mobi-Sports/Live is a research project undertaken by UCLAˇ¦s Wireless Media Lab that involves creating and defining a pilot study for the use of mobile devices by audience in a live sports arena for an interactive multimedia experience involving videos, music and photographs of the event. This research project utilizes the several years of prior R&D since 2001 of the MobIME system described below. 

MobIME - Mobile Internet for Media and Entertainment

Media Entertainment Advisory Board

MobIME research initiative investigates technology - compression schemes, digital rights, network design; content - representation, adaptation, delivery schemes; service -2.5G, 3G, WWAN, WLAN convergence; platforms - Pocket PC, J2ME, BREW, Palm OS; hardware - multiple devices, screen sizes, memory, power; and software - architecture, frameworks, integration; for multimedia content delivery over wireless networks with particular focus on industry segments such as entertainment, gaming, design collaboration and field service. 

To support multimedia content delivery over multiple networks to multi-form factor devices needs a comprehensive treatment of the content, network and device constraints. The framework would have to be capable of delivering the same content in multiple ways, different speeds, allow interaction in different ways but always maintaining the session/application comprehension and context at all times, irrespective of the network, device, etc., in use. 

The research endeavor of this project would be on developing fundamentally new frameworks, algorithms, and data representation schemes; supporting multi-form factor devices, etc., complying with the constraints of the devices and the wireless networks like bandwidth, power, memory and computing capabilities
