Video transmission in a local area network consumes a great deal of network resources. Hybrid Analog/Digital Video Networks (ADViNet) can remedy this deficiency. ADViNet allows users to send real-time full-screen motion images through an analog communication medium without slowing down regular network activities. In this paper we are going to consider a multilayer control and management protocol that will allow users to supervise the analog medium through the digital one. Several groups of new protocol commands will be introduced. The first group covers the operations that directly change the ways of distributing video information through the analog medium. The second group includes network administration commands. Some of the ADViNet functions are intelligent: besides data transmission, they include data processing and/or decision-making elements.
