Paper Abstract

In order to solve the current problems for QoS controllable multimedia communication applications, this paper analyzes generic requirements for multimedia communications, clarifies basic roles and functions and the efficient assignment of them, and proposes a new architecture. This paper takes pragmatic approaches and focuses on the mechanism on how to provide QoS control features for multimedia communication applications with a minimum of change in current traditional programming styles. These proposed ideas and architecture have been implemented into the prototype system, on WindowsNT with real-time MPEG encoding and decoding multimedia data communications. This paper describes this implementation and the result of the architecture and ideas.
