Distance Learning over ATM


The project will design and implement a software control system for a distance learning system that supports tele-lectures over high-speed wide-area networks. The system will feature transmission of high-quality full-motion compressed video, digital audio, and shared annotation of a whiteboard. The conference control software will be based on our grounds-wide tele-tutoring system (gwTTS).

The technical challenge of the project is the integration of the high-speed network (ATM) technology used for video transmission with the Internet-based software control system. The outcome of this project is software that provides Litton-Network Access Systems (formerly Litton-Fibercom) with a prototype of a multi-party multimedia distance learning tool that is using Litton's CAMVision 7610 digital codec for video transmission. The resulting system will be one of Litton's distance learning applications.
