The Washington University MultiMedia eXplorer (MMX) is a complete, host-independent multimedia system capable of transmitting and receiving JPEG-compressed video, CD-quality audio, and high-resolution radiographic images over the Washington University broadband ATM network. If the host is equipped with an ATM interface card, normal network traffic is supported via "T" and "Y" connections. The MMX consists of an ATMizer and three multimedia subsystems. The ATMizer implements the host interface, the interface to the ATM network, and the interface to the three multimdeia channels. This paper describes the architecture of the MMX, the software used with the system, and the applications which have been developed to demonstrate the capability of broadband ATM networks for multimedia applications.
