MOST Efficient Connection
MOST Forum 2014: MOSTCO Presents UPnP and Video Coding Use Cases
Karlsruhe (Germany) April 29, 2014 – At the upcoming MOST Forum on May 13, 2014 in Stuttgart/Esslingen (Germany), the MOST® Cooperation – standardization organization for the leading automotive multimedia network technology Media Oriented Systems Transport (MOST) – will show the latest application highlights for the MOST150 network technology. "These will demonstrate that MOST Technology is the most efficient connection between various domains in the vehicle, such as infotainment, driver assist, navigation and communications inside and outside the vehicle," stated Henry Muyshondt, Executive Director of the MOST Cooperation. "MOST meets the challenge of keeping the network at top efficiency by providing optimal performance at low cost."
One use case demonstration will be the coding and decoding of video data transmitted from a TV tuner over the MOST network. Another highlight will be the demonstration of the Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) standard with MOST Technology. The interaction of UPnP within the MOST network will provide the close integration of consumer devices in MOST based vehicles. This makes the vehicle user interface more personalized. In addition, it allows carmakers to keep up with the short lifecycles of consumer electronics.
About MOST Technology
MOST (Media Oriented Systems Transport) is a multimedia networking technology optimized for use in cars and other applications. It enables the transport of high Quality of Service audio and video together with packet data and real-time control over a single transmission medium. MOST can use plastic optical fibers (POF), coax based electrical physical layer, and shielded and unshielded twisted pair (STP/UTP) copper wires that meet automotive environmental requirements. Today, MOST is used in over 150 car models as the communication backbone for their information and entertainment equipment.
About MOST Cooperation
The MOST Cooperation (MOSTCO) is the organization through which MOST Technology is standardized and refined so that it continues to stay abreast of the latest industry requirements. Today it consists of 16 international carmakers and more than 60 key component suppliers. They have joined together to work with the MOST Technology and to contribute to its innovation. The MOST Cooperation is prepared to embrace efforts to further develop and standardize the technology for other industries and to establish the corresponding work structures. The MOST Cooperation was founded in 1998 to standardize MOST Technology as a global standard for multimedia networking. Audi, BMW, Daimler, HARMAN and Microchip Technology are its core partners and constitute its Steering Committee. For more information see http://www.mostcooperation.com.
