Storage Systems & Applications 28-11-2004
22
Services Platforms and Applications for
Transparent Information management
in an in-hOme Network
Future CE products will have a huge amount of storage
Multiple devices will offer storage on the network
Our focus:
Distributed storage in home networks
Help users find and organise their content
Enhancing UPnP
Storage Systems & Applications 28-11-2004
23
User Requirements
Obtaining an overview of all content
By Metadata & Not a
“Windows Explorer” view
Easily searching for photographs,
music, video
Knowing what is stored on devices that
are turned off
Managing DVD/CD collection
Organizing content
Users do not want to know location of content

U PnP
Architecture
Control point
iPronto
Media Server
PC
Media Renderer
Streamium
Each UPnP Media Server
exports it’s own content
-Not as files, but with Metadata

25
TCP/IP Based Networked Storage: UPnP
Open Issue
• With many networked
devices the consumer will
not know where to look
A consumer wants to see all
content in the house
•100’s of hours video
•1000’s of songs
Storage Systems & Applications 28-11-2004
•10000’s of photographs

Conclusions
• CE Systems are making increased use of IT platforms
–Improvements have been made to QoSof CE
application running on IT platforms
• Devices are becoming intelligent and storage rich
–Consumers can be supported during browsing and
accessing content from local personal archives by
using metadata and databases
• Both distributed storage and distributed metadata can
be expected in the “Connected Home”
–Consumers will become storage location agnostic
