TIRAMISU developed a complete end-to-end framework solution, consisting of hardware and software focussing on interoperability, use of open standards, and protection of intellectual assets. This solution serves as a proof of concept and as the foundation for wide deployment of equipment and networks that will augment the use of digital media Europe-wide and world-wide based on existing and emerging open standards. Such a solution must be comprised of contributions from various disciplines, integrating content management, security tools, streaming, networking and peer to peer solutions, as well as consumer devices and user applications.
