Paper Abstract

With the release of IBM's preemptive multitasking OS/2 2.1 operating system, a 32-bit multimedia environment supporting digital video and audio is now available for widespread commercial use. While digital audio architectures and subsystems are becoming common, digital video architectures are relatively new, and the OS/2 2.1 implementation is one of the first to come standard with an operating system. This paper gives an overview of the general architecture of OS/2 2.1 multimedia, followed by a focused description of the architectural aspects unique to digital video.
