Paper Abstract

We present an architecture that combines video, voice, and data capabilities in a PC-compatible workstation. This architecture has been realized as an actual workstation product which provides the user with many communications abilities, including full motion video/audio communication over digital networks. The current version executes a transform based video compression algorithm, using a 16 by 16 pixel discrete cosine transform. During video phone calls, users may transfer computer files, execute programs, send snapshots of computer screens, send FAX messages, and transfer data from other devices through serial data ports built into the workstation. The design also supports storing and retrieving video sequences (with sound) and still pictures on magnetic or optical discs.
