Future applications are envisioned to be adaptive to various changes in network, environment and situation. These so-called pervasive applications will be composed from both locally and globally available multimedia resources such as audio and video, web services and context sources. The rapidly increasing pervasiveness in todays networks, i.e. the number of mobile devices, the amount of data they generate and share (near) realtime increases rapidly. In fact this forms the basis for research efforts on the Internet of Things. The increased pervasiveness leads to numerous efficiency and scalability challenges. This chapter will detail the state of the art and binding concepts for efficient realtime sharing and mobility of multimedia and context. Additionally, it lists the associated challenges and their progress in a number of research projects.
