Abstract

The CSULA SPACE Center has endeavoured to develop the Semantic Information System (SIS) Network for real-time project collaboration. However, the lack of uniform, real-time communication platform application poses an inconvenience to the project collaborators, as they would be driven towards third-party communication applications, such as Skype, MSN, Yahoo Messenger, etc. The use of these commercial products does not incorporate moderation features between the network participants. In addition, these applications have various conference capacity limitations and their simultaneous multi-device sign-in feature can lead to possible concerns with information security (Alegre, 2009). The Ubiquitous Video Conferencing (UVC) application has been designed specifically for the SIS Network in order to provide its participants with dedicated multimedia channels and interactive communication. It is built on the integration of Qt libraries, audio/video codec libraries of FFMPEG, and the image-processing library Open Computer Vision. This paper presents the UVC application within the Semantic Information System Model and focuses on issues related to real-time bandwidth regulation.
