The amount of video streamed over the Internet is soaring – both for home entertainment purposes and in a professional context (e.g. video conferencing tools). Complicating this challenge is end-users’ demand for premium-quality video streams on any device, a requirement current Internet technologies cannot meet. In response, MISTRAL investigated the creation of the next generation of Internet-based video streaming technology.

SHIFT-TV wants to develop the next generation IPTV architecture. It is characterized by location (on multiple screens) and time independent TV viewing and will be easy to integrate with web-based streaming services. In order to achieve this goal, SHIFT-TV will develop new protocols and dynamic and self-learning algorithms to stream video to any client device even within a home network.
