SMC Conference 2007 (2007)




Multimedia standards, frameworks and models are already well established for generalized presentations. However, the situation is much less advanced for systems, which require the combination of advanced sound-oriented features and capabilities similar to those used to interact with highly demanding visual content. In this respect, current commercial presentation applications have been found lacking, often revealing multifaceted presentation limitations, including lack of sound control and delivery. They rarely offer cross-platform compatibility, provide limited programmability, are restrictive on data-interaction, and only support static WWW-based delivery. To overcome the above-stated deficiencies, a number of innovations are proposed, including the presentation of a combined multimedia framework, supported by a model that describes content-connectivity and stream-synchronization, enabling interaction for all audiovisual data-types included in the system.
