Today, many audiovisual delivery systems, including video streaming and video conferencing, are being developed for use over a range of networking technologies, the differing characteristics of which pose problems for service level interoperability. Multimedia transcoding is one means to provide interoperability between different types of audiovisual terminals and between terminals that connect to different networks. In this paper, we will present a multimedia transcoder system, which provides interoperability between video conferencing terminals on IP networks and mobile terminals on mobile networks.
