    Distributed multimedia application development is supported by a growing number of services. While these pave the way for sophisticated multimedia support in distributed systems, using them involves interfacing inconsistent and swiftly evolving technologies. To alleviate this, the authors propose an encompassing framework that offers all services under a unifying hybrid object/hypermedia paradigm View full abstract»

    Unencumbered hand gesture interfaces encompass both 3D interaction and 2D pointing. A model developed to study 3D interaction requires determining gestural strokes and hand motion dynamics and recognizing hand poses. Extended variable valued logic and a rule based induction algorithm contribute to inductive learning of hand gesture poses, yielding a recognition rate of 94 percent. FingerMouse, a f...

    Banking in the global village becomes reality with multimedia communication systems that connect far flung regions and integrate all their various marketplaces. International banks in particular face the major challenge of achieving the right balance between global and local. They must identify local customers' requirements and satisfy them by exploiting the expertise and technology available worl... View full abstract»

    By modeling difficult sources of linguistic variability in speech and language, we can design interfaces that transparently guide human input to match system processing capabilities. Such work will yield more user centered and robust interfaces for next generation spoken language and multimodal systems View full abstract»

    The emerging open services market transforms services into tradable goods. It involves users; customers; service, content, and middleware providers; and network operators. This market requires effective methods to: provide new services to meet niche market demands; support customized services; provide appropriate accounting and billing mechanisms; support personal and terminal mobility, and meet i...

    Advances in multimedia, virtual reality, and immersive environments have expanded human computer interaction beyond text and vision to include touch, gestures, voice, and 3D sound. Although well developed single modalities for communication already exist, we do not really understand the general problem of designing integrated multimodal systems. We explore this issue and the diverse approaches to ... View full abstract»

    Comparing techniques for storage and real time retrieval of variable bit rate video data for multiple simultaneous users, we conclude that constant time length and hybrid techniques can greatly reduce the total system cost. Of three admission control techniques, data limit admission control offers a moderate gain for a moderate increase in implementation complexity. We also applied our data placem...
