The Ultimedia Services programming interface is presented as a binary class library through System Object Model (SOM). This class library provides various objects that can be used to play, record, and edit media files. See "General Programming Information" for more general information.
Collaboration objects are an Ultimedia Services Version 2.1.5 feature and do not apply to previous versions.
The collaboration support in UMS consists of two objects that interact together to allow the application developer to capture/transmit and receive/play audio and/or video data across a network. The first object, called the Sender, handles the capturing and transmitting of the audio and/or video data. The second object, called the Receiver, handles receiving and playing the audio and/or video data.
To learn more about Sender and Receiver objects, see:
|This object captures audio and/or video data from installed capture options or adapters, packages it, and sends it out onto a network.
|This object receives audio and/or video data from one or more sources on a network and plays it.
