    In digital broadcasting systems, like Eureka 147 DAB, it is possible to separate the actual service from the transmission system. Such a separation enables the distribution of any type of digital data to stationary, portable, or mobile terminals. However, a radio channel for mobile reception has certain characteristics to which existing multimedia services must adapt. We present a multimedia syste... View full abstract»

    The development of biomedical imaging has revolutionized medical practice and health care delivery. The next wave of change, however, will come from merging medical imaging with multimedia technology. We discuss the necessary information infrastructure and supporting technology for this evolving field. We describe four types of clinical applications to illustrate the use and versatility of network... View full abstract»

    We address compression and transmission issues related to images in the National Library of Medicine's Visible Human Project. In total, these images amount to about 235 Gbytes of data, challenging conventional storage, retrieval, and transmission methods. We discuss lossless and lossy methods to compress the images. We also consider advanced transmission-control protocol approaches plus a multisoc... View full abstract»

    The projects described in this article all deal with network heterogeneity in the context of distributing multimedia information via multicast transmission. Multicasting significantly improves the efficiency of network resource use in situations involving one-to-many or many-to-many communication. Our work addresses application scenarios including video conferencing, remote collaboration, and vide... View full abstract»

    Electronically connecting medical experts with patients permits remote care delivery from diagnostics to surgery. Traditional visual computing tasks such as volume rendering or image processing may also become more available when electronically local. Recent innovations in media processing and client-server technology will help process both video and graphics in real time and enable an electronica... View full abstract»

    Standards for communication systems once were produced by specific industries in a vertically integrated fashion. Multimedia, which merges different forms of communication, requires a new approach-horizontal or layered-to develop standards. This implies a radical change in the way standards are produced. Increasing the bandwidth to end users also forces a change in the role of public authorities i... View full abstract»

    Our interactive multimedia presentation development system uses artificial intelligence to specify knowledge inheritance relations between presentation windows. An object-oriented multimedia database organizes resources and presentations, and a database browser facilitates object reuse. The system runs under Windows 95 and can be used for general-purpose presentations or for education, training, o... View full abstract»

    Toward the end of the 1995 fall semester at Indiana University's Kokomo (IUK) campus, we formed a team to develop a multimedia system for an upcoming 1996 art gallery exhibit of works inspired by Dante's Divine Comedy. The authors review the development process, thus providing some useful insights, including warning you away from what they call the seven deadly sins of multimedia development. As D...

    The real-time requirements of continuous media call for careful resource management in distributed multimedia systems. In complex and mobile systems, however, effective resource reservation becomes almost impossible. Recent research suggests adaptive applications as a complementary solution. This article reviews heterogeneous networks and the rationale behind adaptation, gives implementation examp... View full abstract»
