Scalnet Logo

The 5th October was the final review of the CELTIC SCALNET project where I was involved in the design and development.

The focus of SCALNET was the study of impact and modifications needed in the core and user network to integrate the H.264/SVC technology. It also studied the control interface between networks and video processing equipments.

Personally it gave me the possibility to stay for a few months in Klagenfurt University spending a very nice and useful time.

We (University of Murcia) were working in the SVC MP4 encapsultation, transmission and adaptation. As a result we produced some software components able to work with SVC and integrates other components from the SCALNET architecture.

- Modified MP4Creator

- Modified Darwin Streaming Server

- A Media Aware Network Element (MANE) based on an RTSP Proxy

- A DirectShow based client using JSVM Reference software, opensvcDecoder and MainConcept decoder.

Now that SCALNET has finished we have to think about our approaching objectives which will off course include SVC ;-)

  1. Hi,

    Im currently working in a project for my phD at ISCTE (lisbon university). Where a need to do a SVC multi session transmission, and i believe I will be needing a modified MP4Creator to build a MP4 files container with the SVC layers in separate tracks.
    Have you manage to do that in your modified MP4creator and are you willing to share your MP4creator exe/code or some advices :)

    Best regards and thanks

  2. Hi Joao,
    we will be very pleased in collaborate with you in your work. We have a modified mp4creator which produces extractor and hint tracks for the SVC extension. We also have a modified Darwin Streaming Server able to use those mp4 files to stream them over the network. If you wish I can contact you directly at your email (just tell me if you agree) and we can have a longer chat about what you need and what we have :)
    Best Regards

  3. Of course i agree, any colaboration will be very apreciate :)

    best regards

  4. Hello, Jordi Ortiz.

    I'm a graduate student at POSTECH in Korea. Recently, I'm researching on SVC, and I want to do some experiments on real testbed. So, if it is possible, could you share your MP4crease/modified dss?

    Best regards
