There is currently considerable interest in developing multimedia applications in open distributed systems. However, it is now becoming clear that existing architectures for open distributed systems do not support the particular requirements of continuous media types such as digital audio and video. This is particularly the case in the important areas of quality of service support and realtime synchronization. This paper presents results from dte Sumo project which aims at supporting continuous

The paper advocates the use of synchronous languages within this framework for specifying and implementing real-time synchronization and QoS monitoring. A computational model and the realization of an infrastructure supporting this view are presented.
