Corcoran, P., Cucos, A., & Callaly, F. (2005, 21-24 Nov. 2005). Home Networking Middleware Infrastructure for Improved Audio/Video Appliance Functionality and Interoperability. Paper presented at the Computer as a Tool, 2005. EUROCON 2005.The International Conference on.
A software architecture is described which significantly improves the accessability of multiple home appliances on a heterogeneous home network. Methods for aggregating devices into virtual clusters on a local middleware server are described. These metadevices combine the functionalities of multiple devices but are presented to the user as a single device with a single user interface. Some practical examples of working A/V metadevices are given.
