Wireless video streaming, and specifically IPTV, has been a key challenge during the last decade, including the provision of access to users on an always best connected basis using different wireless access networks, including continuous seamless mobility. There are different proposals including IP based video streaming, DVB-H, or MediaFLO to carry out IPTV and video streaming on demand to users in a wireless environment, but one of the most relevant elements is the architecture of the service, with all the components of the delivery process. In this work the authors propose an alternative architecture based on a wireless Content Delivery Network, optimized to distribute video to mobile terminals in order to create a triple screen platform; considering that the main available wireless access networks are WiFi, WiMAX, and 3G, this work focuses on the last two. Surrogates within the CDN architecture act as video streaming servers, while the origin servers in the content providers carry out the transcoding process in order to be compliant with individual client requirements.
