Chapter 9: Integrating a Multimedia Player in a Network of Communicating Objects


Jacques Lemordant, Gravir-Inria,

1 Introduction

Heterogeneous groups of hardware and software components can be federated into a single network. We have developed a framework allowing MPEG-4 players to join a federation using Jini technology. MPEG-4 players are based on a classical client-server architecture. By joining a federation, an MPEG-4 player is able to have access not only to predefined services associated with its application server, but also to dynamic services provided by the federation. Reciprocally the player is offering its display capabilities to devices in the federation and a connexion to its application server.

This work has been done under the IST project SoNG (2000 “2002).
