The MOVIS project will implement a system to perform online measurements of end user service quality for streamed content. A prototype developed in MOVIS will be used at TV2 Interaktiv and the other content providers. The prototype reports the service qua lity, quality estimates, and comments of the end user to the content providers for the purpose of providing the right QoS level to the end user. Since the distribution of content will be done through several ISPs beyond the content provider's control, and with different transport technologies, the MOVIS prototype will be designed independent of implementation issues at the ISPs transport mechanisms. The ISPs are participating in the project for defining, implementation, and testing of technical and percei ved class of service metrics.
MOVIS will look at metrics, protocols, and architectural issues for online measurements of end-user QoS for video delivery in networks. MOVIS will design and implement a prototype for performing measurements of the end user QoS, which will be the basis for a service to be used actively by the content providers and the Internet providers.
