Paper Abstract

We have developed a set-top box with video encoder (STB-VE), in order to provide STB users with bi-directional multimedia applications such as video conferencing, in addition to traditional STB applications such as Video On Demand (VOD). This paper comprises of two parts. The first part describes the design of the STB-VE hardware and software. The second part describes the application of STB-VE to videoconferencing. We have designed a new protocol called the Multimedia Session Control Protocol (MSCP) for conversational multimedia applications such as video conferencing. We have developed the video conferencing system using MPEG1, by implementing MSCP on STB-VE.
