This paper presents an open multimedia framework, called MMFramework. It may be used for dynamic creation of various multimedia applications. The proposed framework architecture consists of six layers. Its definition results from decomposition of the system into components with well-defined interfaces and internal implementation dedicated to the given hardware usage. Each layer represents a collection of components which are characterized by similar functionality. The system has been designed with support of existing CORBA Services and OMG specifications related to multimedia.
