Foreward about Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Beginners' Made Easy Tutorial
This site started out as an introduction to internet multimedia. But over the years it has grown very popular with one aspect of it. That is the Introduction to Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) - A Beginners' Made Easy Tutorial. However, I still maintain this index page as an introduction to internet multimedia in general.
Challenge for Internet Multimedia
Internet Multimedia is a very happening field. Lots of work is going on to improve the quality of multimedia on the network. The challenge is massive. It is more so because of the accessories we already have in our hand. You already have a digital music system or a home theater in your house. Why should you bother to access an audio/video media over the net which may be slow or of poor quality! So it is a difficult task for the technologists working on Internet to make the multimedia service over IP network good enough to attract the general mass.
Prospect of Internet Multimedia
How daunting the work may sound, I think the techie group has been quite successful. However the pursuit for the best quality Internet Multimedia is far from being over. A host of Multimedia Services are being offered over the globe though Internet or otherwise and you can expect much more of them. As the industry evolves it needs more and more people to work on Internet Multimedia. The prospect is enormous but it is sometimes difficult to get going in this relatively new field.
