DDay: Real Time
Friday 10 May, 1996 - 10:00-12:00
Phillip Hoschka, W3C/INRIA
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
