Abstract

This paper provides details and implementation experiences of a multimedia programming language and associated toolkits. The language, a data-flow paradigm for multimedia streams, consists of blocks of code that can be connected through their data ports. Continuous media flows through these ports into and out of blocks. The blocks are responsible for the processing of continuous media data. Examples of such processing include capturing, displaying, storing, retrieving and analyzing their contents. The blocks also have parameter ports that specify other pertinent parameters, such as location, and display characteristics such as geometry, etc. The connection topology of blocks is specified using a graphical editor called the Program Development Tool (PDT) and the geometric parameters are specified by using another graphical editor called the User Interface Development Tool (UIDT). Experience with modeling multimedia presentations in our environment and the enhancements provided by the two graphical editors are discussed in detail.
