Paper Abstract

Programmable multimedia imaging workstations over a high bandwidth network (ATM) were used to explore the role of multimedia workstations in the telemedicine application. The multimedia workstation is based on the MediaStation 5000 which uses a TMS320C80 Multimedia Video Processor to handle the multimedia bitstreams and image display/processing functions. Although the telemedicine workstation exhibited its high performance and programmability, we found from the experiment that a tighter integration of the multimedia capability with the networking component should be one of the most desired improvements for the telemedicine system to become applicable in routine clinical environments.
