QoS support for distributed multimedia communications [chapter]

F. García, D. Hutchison, A. Mauthe, N. Yeadon
1996 Distributed Platforms  
The nature of distributed multimedia applications is such that they require multipeer communication support mechanisms.  ...  Multimedia traffic needs to be delivered to end-systems, networks and end-users in a form that they can handle while satisfying the constraints imposed by the multimedia application.  ...  This work is also carried out in the context of the GCommS project funded by the EPSRC (grant number GRlJ47804).  ...

Pegasus---operating system support for distributed multimedia systems

Ian M. Leslie, Derek McAuley, Sape J. Mullender
1993 ACM SIGOPS Operating Systems Review  
The theme of the Pegasus project is the design and implementation of general-purpose operatingsystem support for distributed multimedia applications.  ...  Very few, if any systems exist today that can claim to be multimedia systems in this sense.  ...  Another advantage of the log is that the file system produces very large contiguous write operations. These can be striped over several disks for higher data rates.  ...
