HiQoS - High-Performance Multimedia Services with Quality-of-Service Guarantees

The goal of HiQoS (High-Performance Multimedia Services with Quality-of-Service Guarantees) is the implementation of platforms supporting high-performance net-based multimedia services, their corresponding development in form of prototypes, and their corresponding evaluation in real-world industrial applications. These services are characterized by the integration of high-quality streamed media and physically-based animation, based on standard Internet technology. For the implementation of these services the following two approaches are particularly emphasized: 

  • physically-based rendering using parallel computers
  • facilitating "Quality-of-Service (QoS)" guarantees in a network of multimedia servers
