The MOST Cooperation – the organization through which the leading automotive multimedia network Media Oriented Systems Transport (MOST) is standardized – will host the 9th MOST Interconnectivity Conference Asia on November 5th, 2008. At the JW Marriott Hotel in Seoul, South Korea, representatives of the MOST Cooperation will present to Asian carmakers and their suppliers an update on recent achievements of the organization and the MOST standardization roadmap. The Conference is open to the public.
During the morning session, members of the Steering Committee will give an overview which will be expanded by various member presentations in the afternoon as well as by various technical demonstrations. One demonstration will cover MOST50 and its electrical Physical Layer (ePhy). MOST50 was recently put on the road in various car models by Toyota. Other car makers will soon also launch cars with that technology.
Another multimedia demonstration will show the latest generation of MOST – MOST150 – that will hit the road within a couple of years. In addition to its higher bandwidth of 150 Mbps, MOST150 features an isochronous transport mechanism to support extensive video applications, as well as an Ethernet channel for efficient seamless transport of IP-based packet data. Thus, MOST150 provides the automotive-ready physical layer for Ethernet in the car. The demonstration will showcase the high bandwidth efficiency of MOST150, as well as high-speed Ethernet packet transport, multi-channel video streaming from HDD, as well as isochronous streaming of HDTV and SDTV.
Just recently, the MOST Cooperation has launched the MOST Specification Rev. 3.0 for the next generation infotainment backbone featuring a complete overhaul of the specification structure and offering several new features. While the specification is independent of speed grade, it can already work with the newly defined MOST150 physical layer.

About MOST Technology
MOST (Media Oriented Systems Transport) is a multimedia networking technology optimized for but not restricted to use in cars. It enables transport of high quality of service audio and video together with packet data and real-time control over a single transmission medium. MOST offers transmission over Plastic Optical Fiber and Unshielded Twisted Pair copper physical layers under automotive conditions. MOST to date is used in over 60 car models and represents the communication backbone for their information and entertainment equipment.
The MOST Cooperation is the organization through which MOST Technology is standardized and refined so that it continues to stay abreast of the latest industry requirements. Today it consists of 16 international carmakers and more than 75 key component suppliers. They have joined together to work with the MOST Technology and to contribute to its innovation. The MOST Cooperation is prepared to embrace efforts to further develop and standardize the technology for other industries and to establish the corresponding work structures. The MOST Cooperation was founded in 1998 to standardize MOST Technology as a global standard for multimedia networking. Audi, BMW, Daimler, Harman/Becker and SMSC as core partners form its Steering Committee.
