    It would be difficult to overestimate the importance of visual information in current computer systems. Visual computing, which embraces processing, interpreting, modeling, assimilating, storing, retrieving, and synthesizing visual information, now plays a crucial role in many fields. These include multimedia, virtual reality, robotics, scientific visualization, and communications systems. And the... View full abstract»

    The use of emerging multimedia technologies in education will cause a major shift in the educational services paradigm that promises major advantages over present analog distance learning systems. However, the difficulties encountered with the simultaneous introduction of new services and new technologies often impede the accomplishment of set goals. A more prudent and feasible first step might we... View full abstract»

    The Moving Picture Experts Group was established in 1988 in the framework of the Joint ISO/IEC Technical Committee (JTC 1) on Information Technology. They were given the mandate to develop standards for coded representation of moving pictures, associated audio, and their combination when used for storage and retrieval on digital storage media (DSM). In April 1990 they became Working Group 11 of JT... View full abstract»

    Don't use interactive technology to do what can be more gracefully done elsewhere. Use the elaborate functions of multimedia only to do what cannot otherwise be done. Don't, for example, have users read large chunks of material on the computer, when they can digest this material much more efficiently and pleasantly in a book. Mix traditional presentations with the kind of questioning and investiga... View full abstract»

    In human affairs, brokers are intermediaries with specialized knowledge who work toward a mutually desirable outcome through negotiation. The QOS Broker is a software engineering technique that uses this principle to arrange for the delivery of end-to-end quality of service in distributed multimedia systems. An experimental prototype using a telerobotics application helped identify the technique's... View full abstract»

    The upcoming MHEC standard, under development by ISO's Multimedia Hypermedia Experts Group, defines a system-independent encoding of the structure information used for storing, exchanging, and executing multimedia presentations. This article describes the building blocks of an MHEG-encoded presentation through a running example. Our experience involved using MHEG in a networked multimedia kiosk, f... View full abstract»

    Next-generation multiprocessors will be deployed as servers in a multimedia environment. Current servers cannot handle multimedia traffic internally and effectively deliver the network's high bandwidth to the processing and storage subsystems. Three proposed scalable, subsystem-based, multimedia server architectures use ATM to tackle this problem View full abstract»
