    Debating Multimedia Standards

Course Organizer(s):



    The panel presents a perspective and comparison of emerging industry standards for integrated media, both de facto and chartered by a standards committee. Panelists active in championing new multimedia standards, such as those based on HyTime, Quicklime, UNIX media, Application Programmer interfaces (APls), and PC multimedia standards, describe the architectural models, implementation trials and tribulations, and future of these emerging standards. Audience participation is expected and encouraged in the debate on whether committee standards groups, trade associations, user groups, or platform vendors are driving the new media integration standards.
