Network-integrated multimedia middleware (NMM)

Marco Lohse, Florian Winter, Michael Repplinger, Philipp Slusallek
2008 Proceeding of the 16th ACM international conference on Multimedia - MM '08  
In contrast, the Network-Integrated Multimedia Middleware (NMM) offers a multimedia architecture, which considers the network as an integral part and enables the intelligent use of devices distributed  ...  Today's multimedia infrastructures adopt a centralized approach, where all multimedia processing takes place within a single system. The network is, at best, used for streaming data transmission.  ...  First, it allows an application to access files stored on distributed systems without the need for a distributed file system, such as NFS.  ...

System Support for Distributed Multimedia Applications with Guaranteed Quality of Service [chapter]

Nguyen Hong Quang, Guy Bernard, Djamel Belaid
1995 High Performance Networking  
We consider the problem of executing distributed multimedia applications with Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. Such applications involve several resources (CPU, network, file system, memory).  ...  Applications interact with one QoS manager only through a well-defined interface.  ...  Moreover, we have shown that the file system structure need not be modified in order to support multimedia applications, only the management has to be.  ...

A Self-Reconfigurable Multimedia Player on FPGA

Javier Castillo, Pablo Huerta, Cesar Pedraza, Jose Martinez
2006 2006 IEEE International Conference on Reconfigurable Computing and FPGA's (ReConFig 2006)  
This work presents a novel implementation where an FPGA based multimedia player makes use of the selfreconfiguration capabilities of modern FPGA families in order to support new multimedia formats.  ...  When the player needs to play a song with a non-supported format it securely downloads the required hardware from Internet and reprograms the FPGA with the new codec.  ...  In future work the system will support more audio codec like Ogg Vorbis and will also support video algorithms to play video files.  ...
