SUMMARY

Mobile Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) delivers omnipresent multimedia video services through mobile devices, and a cloud system provides services for content integration. This study presents a personalized mobile IPTV system based on a cloud network. The system allows users to browse their favorite multimedia videos in the cloud networks through mobile devices. Without the trouble of repeated and complex searches of multimedia files, the system can automatically search for nearby multimedia data that users are browsing, and reconstruct dispersed video contents through a seamless video reconstruction algorithm (SVRA) for integration into video data for continuous play, thus, becoming a user-friendly mobile IPTV system. The study focuses on the design and implementation of a SVRA, and validation of the accuracy of the theories and the algorithm through the proposed system are presented in this paper. This system was tested and validated with success. Copyright © 2011 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
