The PREMO Framework: Object-Oriented Issues

  • Peter Wisskirchen
Part of the Focus on Computer Graphics book series (FOCUS COMPUTER)


The need for a coordinated method for addressing all aspects of the construction of, presentation of, and interaction with multi-media objects has lead to the need for the standardization of a Presentation Environment for Multi-Media Objects (PREMO). In this paper the state of discussions inside the DIN working group is reported focusing on object-oriented aspects of the PREMO framework.
