Colin Perkins

Invited paper presented at the 17th SPIE/IS&T International Symposium on Electronic Imaging, San Jose, CA, USA, January 2005.


The increasing convergence of audio/visual communication networks and IP networks, such as the Internet, has many well-documented benefits. There are, however, problems inherent in adapting video communication systems to run on the less than ideal service provided by typical IP networks. This paper highlights these problems, outlines ongoing standards activities in this area, and describes areas where further research and standards development is needed.
