Extended User Control over Multichannel Content Delivered over the Web
We describe a server architecture that allows for inclusion of multichannel content in a website, supporting delivery to the user's web browser. With conventional content-delivery mechanisms, this is possible only by implementing browser-specific plug-ins for each platform. Our solution applies not only to any Flash-capable browser, but additionally supports per-channel volume control by the user while maintaining stream synchronization during playout. This capability is critical for end-user ``mixing' of streamed audio/video content, which, while motivated by the requirements of our "Open Orchestra" music rehearsal system, is also useful for other potential applications.
