Handheld Devices for Applications Using Dynamic Multimedia Data

Pham, Binh L. & Wong, On (2004) Handheld Devices for Applications Using Dynamic Multimedia Data. In Graphite 2004, Singapore.


Growing demand for ubiquitous and pervasive computing has triggered a sharp rise in handheld device usage. At the same time, dynamic multimedia data has become accepted as core material which many important applications depend on, despite intensive costs in computation and resources. This paper investigates the suitability and constraints of using handheld devices for such applications. We firstly analyse the capabilities and limitations of current models of handheld devices and advanced features offered by next generation models. We then categorise these applications and discuss the typical requirements of each class. Important issues to be considered include data organisation and management, communication, and input and user interfaces. Finally, we briefly discuss future outlook and identify remaining areas for research.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
