Whitepaper: Digital Still Cameras and Mobile Agents: How to Create a Distributed Service for Image Processing

by STMicroelectronicsJan 01, 2008

The recent technological progress in the areas of high-speed networks, wireless systems, and low cost multimedia workstations is enabling the development and the diffusion of new types of distributed multimedia applications. In this area, the user’s mobility is an important aspect to be considered. It introduces space and time discontinuity for accessing the distributed system. Adequate mechanisms need, therefore, to be developed, in order to manage both the user’s temporary disconnection from the system and his/her subsequent connection from another client transparently.
