Perceived Quality of Service and Content-based Bandwidth Management in e/m-Learning Smart Environments for the Cultural Heritage

Cristina De Castro

Abstract

Smart Applications for the Cultural Heritage are playing an increasingly fundamental role in several fields, ranging from tourism to home entertainment. E/m-Learning systems are also involved, since advanced contents from the Cultural Heritage can be used in History of Art lessons. For instance, teachers can decide to make students enjoy HQ images or videos of masterpieces, accessed from the Internet. In this context, several problems must be considered, among which an appropriate fruition of such data. In this paper, two specific issues are taken into account: firstly, the so called Perceived Quality of Service (PQoS) in case of visual information; secondly, the case is discussed of high-bandwidth demanding contents accessed in real-time, such as HQ streaming videos. An early architecture is finally proposed for the dynamic management of bandwidth release on the basis of content size and duration.
