Multimedia streaming technology in 4G mobile communication systems
offered by Real Networks, Microsoft, and Apple dominate the Internet streaming software market. In the near future, third-generation mobile communication systems will extend the scope of today_s Internet streaming solutions by introducing standardized streaming services, targeting the mobile user_s specific needs. By offering higher data-transmission rates up to 20 Mbps more than 3G for wide-area coverage and local-area coverage, 4G systems will be able to provide high quality streamed content to the rapidly growing mobile market. In addition to higher data rates, these systems also will offer value-added applications supported by an underlying network that combines streaming services with a range of unique mobile specific services such as
Multimedia content, geographical positioning, user profiling, and mobile payment.
Mobile cinema ticketing is one example of such a service. First, the mobile network or a terminal integrated positioning system such as GPS would determine the user_s geographical location. Then, the service would access a cinema database to generate a list of nearby movie theatres and a user profile database to determine what kind of movies the user likes best. Based on the geographical location information and userdefined preferences, the service would offer the user a selection of available movies and show times. The user would then have the option of using the mobile device to view corresponding movie trailers through a streaming service. Upon choosing a film, the user could purchase a ticket through payment software on the mobile device.
This and other mobile application scenarios present numerous challenges, such as how to provide spectrum efficient streaming services over varied radio-access networks to different types of end-user terminals. Our standard-based Interactive Media platform addresses these challenges by using an architecture that fits seamlessly into 4G mobile communication systems. An integral part of this architecture is a streaming proxy, which acts on both the service and transport levels. It is flexible enough to deal with different operator requirements and that it can provide high-quality streaming services in a mobile application environment.

The popularity and evolution of mobile devices like laptops, mobile phones and Personal Digital Assistants
(PDA), and the evolution of fast mobile networks in the last decade, have made it possible to increase the complexity of mobile applications and services provided to end-users. It is also a spectacular growth in multimedia communication especially via the
World Wide Web. This paper explore some of the current technology of mobile devices, mobile networks and multimedia systems, and is based on the exploration outline some issues for design and development of mobile multimedia systems in 4G
Mobile Communication System. Fourth-generation mobile communication systems will combine standardized streaming with a range of unique services to provide high-quality content ( Multimedia ) that meets the specific needs of the rapidly growing mobile market. By offering higher data-transmission rates up to 20 Mbps more than 3G for wide-area coverage and local-area coverage, 4G systems will be able to provide high quality streamed content to the rapidly growing mobile market.
Many portal sites offer streaming audio and video services for accessing news and entertainment content on the Internet from a PC. The term multimedia streaming means that there are more than one media type involved in the communication, e.g. text and graphics, voice, animations, video and audio. We defines multimedia to denote the property of handling a variety of representation media in an
