MOST® Forum 2013: MOST Cooperation Will Present New Technology Features

Karlsruhe (Germany) – The MOST® Cooperation (MOSTCO) will again participate in the MOST Forum as knowledge partner and exhibitor. At this fifth International MOST Conference on April 23, 2013 in Stuttgart/Esslingen (Germany), the standardization organization for the leading automotive multimedia network Media Oriented Systems Transport (MOST) will celebrate the ongoing success of MOST150 being rolled out. In the exhibition area, the MOST Cooperation will showcase a new feature of MOST called "Remote Control", which the MOST Cooperation is working on adding to the MOST specifications. The new feature will be shown in a demo that connects a head unit with several displays and an amplifier over MOST50 with unshielded twisted pair (UTP) copper wire as well as over MOST150 with coaxial cable.

Volume of MOST150 Cars Boosting

"Succeeding the initial rollout in 2012, the third MOST generation MOST150 based on the MOST Specification Rev 3.0 is now ramping in volume," stated Henry Muyshondt, Technical Liaison of the MOST Cooperation. "The rollout has started in the new Audi A3 and will be followed by Daimler's S-Class vehicles. Following this, the technology will roll out successively through other car models in these two groups and by further carmakers in Europe and Asia." With the MOST Ethernet channel being used on the road to transmit IP data within the vehicle, there is no need to force all data into a particular format to fit a single transmission protocol. MOST transports different types of data such as audio, video, control information and Ethernet or IP frames in parallel.

About MOST Technology

MOST® (Media Oriented Systems Transport) is a multimedia networking technology optimized for use in cars and other applications. It enables the transport of high Quality of Service audio and video together with packet data and real-time control over a single transmission medium. MOST can use plastic optical fibers (POF), coax based electrical physical layer, and shielded and unshielded twisted pair (STP/UTP) copper wires that meet automotive environmental requirements. Today, MOST is used in over 130 car models as the communication backbone for their information and entertainment equipment.

About MOST Cooperation

The MOST Cooperation (MOSTCO) 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 60 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 and Microchip Technology are its core partners and constitute its Steering Committee. For more information see
