In this second volume the authors present fundamental characteristics and properties of multimedia operating and distributed communication systems. KEY TOPICS-Especially of interest to the readers will be (1) scheduling algorithms and other OS supporting approaches for multimedia applications with their soft-real-time deadlines, (2) multimedia file systems and servers with their decision algorithms for data placement, scheduling and buffer management, (3) multimedia communication, transport, and streaming protocols and services with their error control, congestion control and other Quality of Service aware and adaptive algorithms, (4) synchronization services with their skew control methods, and (5) group communication with their group coordinating algorithms and other distributed services. This is the second book of the three volumes to discuss the basic characteristics of multimedia operating systems, multimedia networking and communication, and multimedia middleware systems. The overall goal through all three volumes of the `Multimedia Fundamentals books is to provide a broad understanding of multimedia systems and applications in an integrated manner. A user enjoys a multimedia application only if all pieces of the end-to-end solution fit together. This means that a multimedia application and its user interface must be developed in an integrated fashion with underlying multimedia middleware, operating systems, networks, security, and multimedia devices. MARKET- The key audience is set of researchers who want to get into the multimedia systems area. This means that a researcher, who has a computer science, or computer engineering BS or MS degree, would definitely benefit from this book. Hence he/she should have a good understanding of basic computer science principles, programming languages, operating system and networking concepts.
