Abstract: Distributed interactive media are media that involve communicationover a computer network as well as user interactions with the mediumitself. Examples of this kind of media are shared whiteboardpresentations and networked computer games. One key problem ofthis media class is that a large amount of common functionality is currentlyredesigned and redeveloped for each single medium. In order to solvethis problem we present a media model and an application level protocolcalled RTP/I. Derived from the experience gained with audio and videotransmission using RTP, RTP/I is defined as a new protocol frameworkwhich reuses many aspects of RTP while it is thoroughly adapted tomeet the demands of distributed interactive media. By identifying andsupporting the common aspects of distributed interactive media RTP/Iallows the reuse of key functionality in form of generic services.Furthermore RTP/I makes it possible for applications of differentvendors to interact with each other in a standardized way.
