At the upcoming MOST Forum on May 13, 2014 inStuttgart/Esslingen (Germany), the MOSTÂ® Cooperation â€“ standardizationorganization for the leading automotive multimedia network technology MediaOriented Systems Transport (MOST) â€“ will show the latest application highlightsfor the MOST150 network technology. â€œThese will demonstrate that MOSTTechnology is the most efficient connection between various domains in thevehicle, such as infotainment, driver assist, navigation and communicationsinside and outside the vehicle,” stated Henry Muyshondt, ExecutiveDirector of the MOST Cooperation. “MOST meets the challenge of keeping thenetwork at top efficiency by providing optimal performance at low cost.”
One use case demonstration will be the coding anddecoding of video data transmitted from a TV tuner over the MOST network.Another highlight will be the demonstration of the Universal Plug and Play(UPnP) standard with MOST Technology. The interaction of UPnP within the MOSTnetwork will provide the close integration of consumer devices in MOST basedvehicles. This makes the vehicle user interface more personalized. In addition,it allows carmakers to keep up with the short lifecycles of consumerelectronics.
About MOST Technology
MOST (Media Oriented Systems Transport) is a multimedianetworking technology optimized for use in cars and other applications. Itenables the transport of high Quality of Service audio and video together withpacket data and real-time control over a single transmission medium. MOST canuse plastic optical fibers (POF), coax based electrical physical layer, and shieldedand unshielded twisted pair (STP/UTP) copper wires that meet automotiveenvironmental requirements. Today, MOST is used in over 150 car models as thecommunication backbone for their information and entertainment equipment.
About MOST Cooperation
The MOST Cooperation (MOSTCO) is the organization throughwhich MOST Technology is standardized and refined so that it continues to stayabreast of the latest industry requirements. Today it consists of 16international carmakers and more than 60 key component suppliers. They havejoined together to work with the MOST Technology and to contribute to itsinnovation. The MOST Cooperation is prepared to embrace efforts to furtherdevelop and standardize the technology for other industries and to establish thecorresponding work structures. The MOST Cooperation was founded in 1998 tostandardize MOST Technology as a global standard for multimedia networking.Audi, BMW, Daimler, HARMAN and Microchip Technology are its core partners andconstitute its Steering Committee.
