The role of the proxy server is very important for mobile
computers, which is mainly distilling the original multimedia data.
Conventional proxy servers distil image files into a fixed size
regardless of the display characteristics of the target mobile computer.
We propose an enhanced proxy server called `class-based proxy' that
provides a mobile computer with image files distilled according to its
display class. Implementation with HTTP 1.0 reveals that the proposed
proxy significantly improves the transmission speed of the existing
proxy servers through customized distillation, and provides mobile
computer users with a homepage at comparable speed and quality to
desktop PCs. It also allows mobile computers of the same display class
to share the cached files, which results in a higher cache hit ratio and
thus improved efficiency and scalability
