A Playback Schedule Model for Multimedia Documents
Spring 1996 (vol. 3 no. 1)
pp. 50-61

Multimedia documents differ significantly from traditional documents composed of text and geometric graphics. The introduction of continuous media such as audio, video, and computer-generated graphics imposes new requirements on document representation and information storage. We designed an architecture for creating multimedia documents by means of a logical structure, a layout structure, and a rendering scenario, which is a schedule for document playback.
