As a great many of new devices with diverse capabilities are making a population boom, their limited display sizes become the major obstacle that has undermined the usefulness of these devices for information access. In this paper, we introduce our recent research on adapting multimedia content including images, videos and web pages for browsing on small-formfactor devices. A theoretical framework as well as a set of novel methods for presenting and rendering multimedia under limited screen sizes is proposed to improve the user experience. The content modeling and processing are provided as subscriptionbased web services on the Internet. Experiments show that our approach is extensible and able to achieve satisfactory results with high efficiency.
