An architecture supporting the construction of integrated, multi-media applications is presented. The main characteristics of such applications are described first. A model which permits the I/O devices associated with a multi-media station to be incorporated into an object model for distributed systems is then presented. The architectural features required to permit temporal synchronization of the data from the different devices are then discussed. The utility of the architecture is established through its application to several examples. Future areas of investigation are outlined.
