This paper proposes a new scheme of the home server platform for providing home digital services by connecting home networks and the Internet. The proposed scheme is an integrated form of a home multimedia server, a home control server, and a home information server. The proposed system has an interface between access networks and home networks, various kinds of wired and wireless home networks devices, and multimedia processing modules. As examples of home digital services, the system provides a digital TV service, a remote multimedia service, and an instant message service based on the open service gateway initiative (OSGi) framework. We have implemented the proposed home server scheme, and verify that the system can be a core device of the home digital service environments.
