Distributed media, distributed interfaces, architectures


This paper introduces an adaptive architecture for presenting interactive timed media onto distributed networked devices. The architecture is put into the test in a storytelling application for children. The interactive story is documented in StoryML, an XML-based language, and presented to multiple interface devices organized in an agent-based architecture. This allows the separation of the content from concrete physical devices, the definition of abstract media objects and the automatic adaptation of the same content to different environments of physical devices. Since both the content and the interaction are timed, issues of streaming and synchronization in this architecture are also addressed.
