We can identify two types of media synchronization control: Object (or event-driven) and continuous synchronization control (Campbell et al., 1992). New communication technologies lead to new requirements for multimedia synchronization. Reducing synchronization drew attention from computer scientists for decades. Chapter 15. Lecture 11 - Synchronization in Multimedia Systems References: Steinmetz, R., and Nahrstedt, K. (1995). The scheduler maintains performance guarantees for real-time streams in the presence of unpredictably varying non-real-time traffic while ensuring system stability even during overloads. The rapid development of computer and Internet technologies has made e-Learning become an important learning method. The central issue of this study is how to locate appropriate resources to support situated learning based on user context. Multimedia support on a robust, widely installed platform with little or no additional hardware requirements gives customers the opportunity to enhance their existing applications with multimedia features and then expand their capacity as the demands of the applications increase. Media synchronization control is carried out to compensate for the network delay jitter. Students’ learning administrations were instructed with the 3-instructional lesson plans according to the 5-Step Ladder Learning Management Plan (LLMP) namely; the maintaining lesson plan on the equilibrium of cell issue, a lesson plan for learning how to communicate between cell and cell division. stream Such applications range from educational and training videos, delivered to desktops in schools and enterprises, to entertainment services at home. detecting inconsistency is more difficult.
