Description: Conventional multimedia productions display a Sequence of frames to the user in a linear or non-linear way depending on user interactions. Each frame consists of a fixed set of information through the incorporation of media elements embedded within the frames. Such a traditional framework however fail to meet many of the modern day requirements like need for frequent content updation, customizing the presentation according to user requirements, transmitting the presentation over low bandwidth networks and supporting distributed media components. This paper has been inspired by the lack of tools to solve all of these challenging problems. It aims at introducing a new framework in Structuring multimedia presentations by moving the focus from the concept of frames to the concept of objects. By representing a multimedia presentation as a set of meaningful objects, each associated with its own spatiotemporal parameters, it becomes possible to customize presentations as per specific user needs and introduce functionalities like content searching, which can benefit application areas like distance learning. The paper also discusses issues related to playback of such a presentation over a distributed environment. Moreover it is seen that such frameworks can be made to Support and utilize emerging standards like MPEG-4, MPEG-7 and MPEG-21.

Description: Includes bibliographical references.
