CONTESSA brings benefits to the Content Industry by allowing content to be automatically and cost effectively adapted to any requesting device (PC, smart phones, mobile phones, PDAs, DTV set-top-boxes, etc.) seamlessly over any network infrastructure. The main objectives of CONTESSA are to:
• Develop a content transformation engine that will provide translation and integration of content into device-tailored user interfaces through alternative communication channels. The system will track and manage alternative access devices while providing a personalized environment for content deployment based on a standardized XML framework that will allow the content to be extracted, converted and integrated, without the creator’s interference.
• Validate the system through a number of interactive transactional services to be delivered over multiple types of networks, to devices using different access protocols enabling e-Commerce and e-Business widespread application.
