This project presents the design and implementation of a framework for virtual laboratory applications. A collection of library routines were developed to support user interface windowed presentations from a TCP/IP network video/audio server which stores laboratory lessons. The student client stations can playback the accessed lessons containing sounds, images, and video sequences and send voice or video sequences to the server for processing by a shared voice recognition or image processing facility. Real-time and concurrent multimedia performance aspects are evaluated.
