    It is shown that multimedia, multipoint conferencing systems create important requirements for the networks they use to transmit information among conference participants. These requirements, which stem from the need for conferencing systems to emulate the richness of control present in face-to-face conversations, may extend from the user interface to the control and coordination of communication ...

    An experiment in architecture design for multimedia network services is described. The results obtained suggest that reference models for generalized hypertext systems, commonly called hypermedia systems, may be more readily formulated within the object-oriented system paradigm than other approaches currently under consideration for hypertext alone. The development of the software architecture for... View full abstract»

    Observations, intuitions, and advice are offered to help those who seek the scientific proof of the telecommunications requirements of people and how they might be addressed with technology. The need for multimedia systems is discussed. It is argued that high-performance network technology is in its infancy, and the problems addressed are the mechanics of telecommunications, principally at the mac... View full abstract»
