Background on the demonstrator

The Demonstrator is based on a marketplace where end-users can subscribe to the service, sign in and search desired contents, in a conventional or advanced way through image search and face recognition algorithms applied to videos.

Once selected a particular content, the end-user can pay and  use it (downloading or streaming),  with adaptation features to change dynamically resolution, sample/quality rate, encoding, according to user preferences and based on the device and available bandwidth.

This Demonstrator is able to exploit some of the Contrail unique features:

  • The marketplace is hosted by an Application Provider and implemented with ConPaaS webservice,
  • Contents are hosted by two Content Providers different from the Application Provider,
  • Some features (face recognition in videos, video streaming) are provided through different Technology Providers and make use of ConpaaS components,
  • The performance is guaranteed in terms of system response time and bandwidth through SLA enforcement,
  • Protection of data and contents is guaranteed by Quality of Protection features for Intellectual Property Rights or location enforcing
