The convergence of the telecommunication and information technologies brings a real revolution to the communications world and hence in the way that people interact and communicate with each other. With the development of the World Wide Web technology for browsing and navigating through the Internet, complemented by the global telecommunication network, new, easy-to-use tools are being developed to simplify and enhance collaboration among people. In this paper, we describe the MultiMedia Digital Conferencing (MMDC) prototype system, which is a Web-enabled teleconferencing system. The MMDC server allows heterogeneous clients to use the Internet and the telecommunication network in order to establish and participate in data and/or audio conferences through the use of a variety of audio systems and computing platforms.
