We describe an architecture that supports net-worked multimedia applications. The architecture is based on a separation of multimedia stream processing and application pro-cessing.Applications reside in application pools whereas mediastream processing is performed in multimedia terminals. An application controls a set of terminals that exchange multimedia data streams directly between each other. A tele-teaching and a home shopping example demonstrate important aspects of our architecture.
