Friday 10 May, 1996 - 10:00-12:00


Phillip Hoschka, W3C/INRIA

Brief Outline

Over the last year, the integration of sound and video into the Web has advanced at a rapid pace. Today, a wide range of products for Internet telephony, videoconferencing and audio/video on demand are available. However, most of these first generation tools are not interoperable. In this session, developers will have the chance to learn about example products and discuss standardisation efforts like RTP with some of the best experts in this field.

The session will start off with presentations of high-profile products. Rob Glaser, CEO of Progressive Networks, will speak about RealAudio. The video products by VDOlive will be presented by Ori Cohen. Roy Campbell will demonstrate "Video Mosaic", an RTP-based extension to Mosaic for video-on-demand. This is followed by a look at the future of Internet telephony by Henning Schulzrinne. Henning co-edited the RTP (Real Time Protocol) standard. A large group of vendors have announced support for RTP in the last months. Scott Petrack will discuss the technical issues and choices that must be resolved in order to create a quality, open, interoperable, Internet Telephone system.
