Multi-media Document Translation: ODA and the EXPRES Project by Jonathan Rosenberg, Mark Sherman, Ann Marks, Jaap Akkerhuis

By Jonathan Rosenberg, Mark Sherman, Ann Marks, Jaap Akkerhuis

As a part of the NSF's EXPRES undertaking, the authors investigated how one can interchange multi-media records between different structures. Their investigations ended in an research and implementation of multi-media record structure translation normally, and of the ODA regular particularly. ODA, place of work record structure, is a brand new ISO and CCITT overseas average for representing multi- media records. the result of their investigations are offered during this publication. The e-book comprises assessment information regarding multi-media rfile structure and codecs, an advent to ODA, precise technical requirements on the way to use ODA for multi-media rfile structure translation, and the authors' reports in imposing and utilizing ODA. The e-book additionally features a whole consumer handbook for the authors' publically on hand ODA software program: device kits for manipulating ODA and raster codecs, instruments for analyzing ODA files and pattern translators among ODA and a number of other multi-media codecs. This ebook offers accomplished information regarding ODA for a wide viewers. Planners can get easy information regarding utilizing ODA for interoperation of multi-media platforms. Researchers obtain certain discussions in regards to the benefits and difficulties of utilizing ODA for record illustration, structure translation and archival garage. procedure designers can use the technical descriptions of translators and instruments in specifying their very own. process developers can simply receive the software program as a foundation for prototyping and investigating their very own ODA implementations.

Style systems have really provided mini-programming languages for users to describe the fonnatting of their documents. Thus, style systems have provided a great deal of flexibility and functionality to document systems, but have also made the problem of interchange more difficult. In the next section, we start looking more closely at the issue of interchanging multimedia documents.

The Andrew Message System is a multi-media, electronic mail and bulletin board system that supports thousands of users and thousands of public bulletin boards [11]. For the purposes of this book, the Andrew File System and the Andrew Message System are not relevant. lay. In the Andrew environment these workstations include IBM, DEC and Sun workstatIOns. 2These include IBM PC-compatibles and Apple Macintosh systems. 1. ) at the University of Michigan (UM) is a networking research center that undertakes a variety of projects, which are funded jointly by industrial partners and UM.

Furthermore, the formatting instructions also needed to be editable. 2 Multi-media Document Interchange The proposal submission process, like the scientific collaboration process, involves many different hardware and software tools. Therefore, any attempt to automate these processes must account for broad heterogeneity. Devising an interchange scheme that accounts only for a fixed set of multi-media document formats (for example, the formats in use at eMU and UM) fails to address a critical requirement: the ability of a new document system to participate in free interchange among existing systems.
