The purpose of this project is to develop a simplified DAVIC server on the Sun workstations under Unix and X window environment. DAVIC 1.0 is a comprehensive set of standards that define various types of end-to-end multi-media communication systems. More precisely, we implement only the high level server-client protocols and server service elements specified in DAVIC. This system can provide browsing service, download a file or a portion of it, and play back an MPEG sequence with VCR-like control. Limited by time, manpower and tools, not all the DAVIC specified elements are fully implemented. However, an implementation of a simple video server based on the DAVIC concept has been completed and demonstrated.
