Abstract

In a typical distributed multimedia application, multimedia data must be compressed, transmitted over the network to its destination, and decompressed and synchronized for playout at the receiving site. In addition, a multimedia information system must allow a user to retrieve, store, and manage a variety of data types including images, audio, and video. In this chapter we present fundamental concepts and techniques in the areas of multimedia networking and synchronization.
