Editor's Note

Media applications are becoming increasingly complex. They handle many data formats, run across multiple platforms, and support a wide range of functions. This article describes a standardized set of protocols and APIs that provides efficient access to individual system components, enables rapid deployment of new applications, and improves portability.
