  1. Media Objects in TimeA Multimedia Streaming System Björn Feustel, Thomas Schmidt {feustel,schmidt}@fhtw-berlin.de FH für Technik und Wirtschaft BerlinComputer Centre

  2. Agenda • Introductory Ideas • Media Object Model • MIR – A Media Information Repository • Media Objects in Time • Synchronized Media Streams • Compound Flow Model • Wavelet Web Video • Conclusions and Outlook

  3. Ideas Networked multimedia revolutionizes teaching as did the invention of blackboard and chalk: Online aid in the lecture hall • Teachers load multimedia presentation objects to supplement lectures Telelearning at home • Students recall from and work with full web applications We face an urgent demand for a heterogeneous multitude of multimedia applications

  4. Educational Task Provide an Environment for easy implemen-tation of specific educational applicationssupporting: • Free definition of information layers • General media handling incl. Streaming • Non-linear information structuring • Time-dependent presentation • Event-based interactions

  5. Time in Teaching Perception is a time-dependent process:  The Notion of Time is vital to Teaching • A timeline provides speed and (some) linear orderings (as trad. teachers do) • Time control processes determine performance  Multimedia introduces Time-based Material: • Audio, video, online data processing • Synchronisation tasks arise  Process Synchronous Scalable Media Streams

  6. Modeling Media Objects in Time Temporal and spatial alignment rises a new level of complexity: • Temporal media placement needs playscripts • Authoring challenging in geometry+time state space Individual object preservation : pure video-type streaming ansatz ? Fascinating interaction potentials within analytically preserved object model allows for scene hopping  Underlying Logic of an Object Model needed!

  7. Media Object Model • Media Object (MOB) • Neutral container of MOBs or data • Arbitrary annotations from OO classes • Reusable, self-consistent component • Mob composition open to semantics • Active Document Structures • Flexible object reference model • Event-type actions imposable along referential structures

  8. Media Information Repository Fundamenting Multimedia Applications www.rz.fhtw-berlin.de/MIR

  9. Media Information Repository • Media Object Database • General storage of multimedia data • Provides flexible information structuring • Supports arbitrary annotations • Mir Authoring Environment • Database editing in the Web • Application specific interface • Mir Architecture • General/adaptable access for Clients • Pluggable application subservers

  13. Media Objects in Time

  14. Synchronized Media Streams Accurate scheme for temporal and spatial placement of presentation component: • Timeless objects s.a. text, images, etc. • Time-streamed media s.a. video, audio, etc. • Any composition of the above are combined in a synchronous Web stream for Browser Display

  15. CompoundFlowModel • Intuitively structured object logic: Structuring implements temporal & spatial inclusion relation • Reusable complex presentation components • Media Objects as central composition entities include Playscripts • Time based flow generator • Suitable for light weight client implementation

  16. MobIT Media Objects • Universal container for MOBs or media elements • Object reference list + Playlist • Local co-ordinate system in time and space • Congruence of structure and state space: • Referential self-consistency • Object structure with temporal and spatial meaning (inclusion) • Scalability and Parametrizability

  17. Media Object Structure

  18. Flow Generator Object resolution and time linearization Linearization suitable for dynamic change

  19. Wavelet Web Video • Joint Work with H. Cycon and Group • JAVA implementation of real-time Wavelet PACC Codec • Scalable Video Streamer at low bandwidth (QCIF at 12 fps < 64 kbit/s) • CIF (352 x 288 pixels) at 5 fps performs in real-time within an applet on a 500 MHz Pentium Machine

  20. Architecture and Implementation • 3-tiered Open Multimedia Architecture • Intelligent Multimedia Database System • Additional lightweight XML-Datastore • Subserver Instances for Streaming Media or Data Processing • Wavelet compressed Web Video • Interfaces for additional Media Types or Pluggable Subservers • Pure Java Implementation for Universal Use

  21. Conclusions & Outlook • Universal Media Database. • Application defined Annotations. • Active Document Structuring. • Reusable Presentation Components. • Web Authoring. • Time Synchronization for General Types of Media. • Scalable Video streams in Wavelet compression. • Interaction Model under way.

  22. Virtual Design

  23. Knowledge Market Place
