Under the framework of the FP-7 European MobiThin project, the present study addresses the issue of remote display
representation for mobile thin client. The main issue is to design a compressing algorithm for heterogeneous content
(text, graphics, image and video) with low-complex decoding. As a first step in this direction, we propose a novel
software architecture, based on BiFS - Binary Format for Scenes (MPEG-4 Part 11). On the server side, the graphical
content is parsed, converted and binary encoded into the BiFS format. This content is then streamed to the terminal,
where it is played on a simple MPEG player. The viability of this solution is validated by comparing it to the most
intensively used wired solutions, e.g. VNC - Virtual Network Computing.
