This paper presents a novel network architecture for distributed multimedia systems. The VuNet is a gigabit-per-second desk/local-area ATM network which interconnects general-purpose workstations, network-based multimedia devices and bridges to other networks. During the course of an application, media streams are exchanged between the workstations and(More)
The VuNet is a gigabit-per-second Desk-Area ATM Network which interconnects general-purpose workstations , network-based multimedia devices and bridges to other networks. Workstations access the multime-dia devices over the network and coordinate the movement of information streams among the diierent parts of the system. This architecture presents several(More)
The ViewStation architecture embodies a software-intensive approach to the support of interactive media-based applications. Starting from the premise that the raw media data, e.g., the video pixels themselves, must eventually be made accessible to the application, we have derived a set of architectural guidelines for the design of media-processing(More)
The VuNet is a gigabit-per-second desk/local-area ATM network built in the context of the ViewStation distributed multimedia project. The ViewStation system takes a software-intensive approach to multimedia where real-time data is processed at the application level and not in specialized hardware. The VuNet hardware has been specifically designed to support(More)
The Sagnac all-optical fiber logic gate functions as a two-input AND gate, a two-input AND gate with one inverting input, or both. The fiber logic gate is pipelined and has a fixed latency. This latency has no effect on feed-forward combinatoric circuits. The latency can be used to time multiplex circuits or to time multiplex gates to emulate a circuit.(More)
The Aurora partnership included Nynex, Bell Atlantic and MCI, who investigated issues related to the gigabit transmission facilities which they provided to the research teams. Aurora activities at MIT were undertaken by two groups: the Telemedia, Networks and Systems (TNS) Group and the Advanced Network Architecture (ANA) Group. Section 1 of this report(More)
