Operating-system support for distributed multimedia


Mullender, Sape J. and Leslie, Ian M. and Mcauley, Derek (1994) Operating-system support for distributed multimedia. [Report]

Abstract:Multimedia applications place new demands upon processors, networks and operating systems. While some network designers, through ATM for example, have considered revolutionary approaches to supporting multimedia, the same cannot be said for operating systems designers. Most work is evolutionary in nature, attempting to identify additional features that can be added to existing systems to support multimedia. Here we describe the Pegasus project's attempt to build an integrated hardware and operating system environment from
the ground up specifically targeted towards multimedia.
