Design of an Integrated Environment for Adaptive Multimedia Document Presentation Through Real Time Monitoring
The retrieval of multimedia objects is influenced by factor such as throughput and maximum delay offered by the network, and has to be carried out in accordance with the specification of object relationships. Many current network architectures address QoS from a provider’s point of view and analyze network performance, failing to comprehensively address the quality needs of applications. The work presented in this paper concerns the development of an integrated environment for creation and retrieval of multimedia documents, that intends to preserve the coherence between the different media, even when the process is confronted with a temporary lack of communication resources. This environment implements a communication system that address QoS from the application’s point of view and can help in handling variations in network resources availability through a real-time monitoring over these object relationships.
