Synchronization-Oriented placement and retrieval strategies for delay-sensitive media streams
- 14 Downloads
Multimedia data include text, image, audio and video, etc. Recent developments and advances in the areas of mass storage technology and high speed networks make it feasible for multimedia computing systems to offer services such as multimedia e-mail, teleconferencing and various vivid games. The storage and retrieval of multimedia data are two of the most important technologies in the future multimedia systems. This paper analyzes the synchronization requirements of the delay-sensitive media streams, classifies the synchronization hierarchically and proposes several effective strategies for the intra-media and inter-media data placement problems.
