Abstract

Mobile video broadcasting services offer users the opportunity to instantly share content from their mobile handhelds to a large audience over the Internet. However, existing data caps in cellular network contracts and limitations in their upload capabilities restrict the adoption of mobile video broadcasting services. Additionally, the quality of those video streams is often reduced by the lack of skills of recording users and the technical limitations of the video capturing devices. Our research focuses on large-scale events that attract dozens of users to record video in parallel. In many cases, available network infrastructure is not capable to upload all video streams in parallel. To make decisions on how to appropriately transmit those video streams, a suitable monitoring of the video generation process is required. For this scenario, a measurement framework is proposed that allows Internet-scale mobile broadcasting services to deliver samples in an optimized way. Our framework architecture analyzes three zones for effectively monitoring user-generated video. Besides classical Quality of Service metrics on the network state, video quality indicators and additional auxiliary sensor information is gathered. Aim of this framework is an efficient coordination of devices and their uploads based on the currently observed system state.
