Today's multimedia infrastructures adopt a centralized approach, where all multimedia processing takes place within a single system. The network is, at best, used for streaming data transmission. Since there is a strong trend towards networked systems, these traditional approaches are becoming obsolete. In contrast, the Network-Integrated Multimedia Middleware (NMM) offers a multimedia architecture, which considers the network as an integral part and enables the intelligent use of devices distributed across the network.
