Présentations multimédia synchronisées pour le WWW

Abstract : Recent advances in hardware, software and networks have allowed seamless integration of multimedia within standard computing environments. Currently, the World Wide Web is a framework of choice for handling and disseminating multimedia content. To integrate multimedia within WWW documents, we have proposed temporal extensions to the HTML language that allow to specify the temporal and spatial behavior of documents using new tags. In this way, the HTML documents become multimedia presentations composed of several media objects. We have designed and implemented a synchronization architecture to play such multimedia presentations. A document specified using the HTML extensions is parsed and compiled into standard HTML and Java code, so that it can be shown in a WWW browser. We have also considered the problem of distributed multimedia sources that deliver streams synchronized within a multimedia presentation. We have defined an architecture for negotiating and controlling the transport of temporally sensitive data in a best effort network such as the current Internet. The objective of the architecture is to provide optimal quality of presentation by controlling temporal problems at the most suitable level in the server-transport-client chain.
