Abstract

In this paper we explore an environment for "active media." The environment consists of a lower-level object-oriented framework intended for multimedia programmers and a higher-level facility intended for multimedia designers. We claim that such an environment will be both flexible and powerful for constructing complex multimedia applications. We first define multimedia objects and then explore composition techniques for these objects. Finally, we outline a facility for "scripting," that is, specifying the cooperation of such objects.
