Media Objects in Time - A Time-Directed Multimedia Presentation System for Re-usable Media Objects in the Web that Included a Highly Efficient, Low Complexity Wavelet Video Codec. This Project was done in 1999-2000 and Presented at Cebit 2000.

MobIT Logo

MobIT carefully includes:

  • Time synchronization for general types of media
  • Extensible multimedia object handling
  • Streaming video in wavelet compression
  • Reusability of presentation components
  • Pure JAVA implementations for universal use


Multimedia presentations may contain time-based media such as video, audio or animations. Additionally, any such media object may be linked on a given timeline. MobIT! introduces a new presentation framework that allows for time-dependent linking and user interactions between video and text, audio and images, etc. Thus an automated  display of information from the Internet may accompany appropriate scenes in a running video stream.
To provide superior real-time video streaming, MobIT! includes its own Wavelet Video-player written in JAVA. Based on a highly efficient, low complexity wavelet codec it is capable of dynamical bandwidth scaling.
