- In this research paper a streaming-system was planned and implemented,
which allows several users to observe experiments in the RemoteLab,
using USB-webcams among others.
The focus of research was the unattended and dynamic administration of
the available cams, and the abstraction of the actually used streaming
format, to get almost maintenance-free client software.
The technology chosen to fulfill these requirements is JINI, which
enhances the JAVA-based client with the needed features.
A second important part of the research was the implementation of the
streaming-server in C++ for the win32-platform.
