Building a Multimedia ISDN PC
September/October 1993 (vol. 13 no. 5)
pp. 24, 26-33

A personal-computer-based architecture that uses graphics methods to improve cooperative multimedia work over integrated services digital networks (ISDNs) is discussed. The system supports cooperative multimedia work by providing real-time video, graphics, and speech. The system requirements, components, and general architecture are considered, as is the implementation of the system.
