Title: A Generic Late Join Service for Distributed Interactive Media

Abstract: In this paper we present a generic late join service for distributedinteractive media, i.e. networked media which involve userinteractions. Examples for distributed interactive media are sharedwhiteboards, networked computer games, and distributed virtualenvironments. The generic late join service allows a late comer tojoin an ongoing session. This requires that the shared state of themedium is transmitted from the old participants of the session to thelate comer in an efficient and scalable way. In order to be genericand useful for a broad range of distributed interactive media, thelate join service is based on the Real Time Application Level Protocolfor Distributed Interactive Media (RTP/I). All applications whichemploy this protocol can also use the generic late joinservice. Furthermore the late join service can be adapted to thespecific needs of a given application by specifying policies for thelate join process.
