Lina Ortega :: Blog :: Systematic Study of Emerging Solutions and Standards for Multimedia on the Web

March 13, 2008

This project is targeted at studying standards and solutions for creating and distributing multimedia contents on the Web. Such study will be performed in a systematic way, inspecting selected solutions and standards, analyzing their technical merits, discussing their shortcomings, evaluating (whenever possible) their performance, and providing recommendations for developers and practitioners in the field.

 

The explosive growth of multimedia (images, audio, video, graphics) on the Web – particularly more noticeable after users began taking the role of content producers (as well as consumers) – has motivated the development of new solutions and standards to meet the demand for fast, rich, interactive, web-based solutions. The successful completion of this project will provide much needed understanding of the potential, advantages, and pitfalls, of the most contemporary solutions for creating and distributing multimedia contents on the Web, educating developers and practitioners in the field, and enabling them to make informed decisions

Keywords: multimedia, solutions, standards, web
