This paper describes how to synchronise control of graphical intensive data between two or more Mobile Devices over the air interface.
With the introduction of newer Mobile Telephony technology (i.e. EDGE, GPRS, 3G), the mobile phone will become much than simply a voice communication device. In the future Mobile Devices (i.e. PDAs, etc) will become an extension of the “office PC” and with such; the transfer of Graphical Data between Mobile Devices (such as NetMeeting etc) will be become more prevalent. The aim of this paper is to cover the area where a user is remotely viewing a Presentation using NetMeeting OR a similar application over the air interface on a Mobile Device such as a mobile phone or PDA. This paper will address the problem and proposed solution of limiting the flow of Graphical Intensive Data across the air interface between Mobile Devices.
Problem(s) To Be Solved
The main problem currently posed with the transfer of Graphical Intensive Data (i.e. a Power Point presentation) over an air interface between two or more Mobile Devices is in the slow (and thus costly) update of the presentation on the Mobile Devices. The problem lies in the fact that each page of the presentation is sent from one Mobile Device to the other.
Proposed Solution to the Problem(s)
The proposed solution to the problem of the slow update of data between Mobile Devices is where the presentation is downloaded prior to the meeting and then synchronisation-messages are used to u...
