It is generally agreed that traditional transcoding involves complex computations, which may introduce substantial additional delay to content delivery. Inspired by new multimedia data formats, like JPEG 2000, a new adaptation called modulation is devised. Unlike transcoding, modulation is fast since it basically generates an object’s representation by selecting fragments of the object without decoding/encoding it. In this paper, a framework for pervasive Web content delivery is proposed to exploit the modulation’s benefits.
