This paper comprises a short overview of two promising techniques: resource reservation and media scaling. It provides the motivation for the adoption of these techniques, and it shows how they can be exploited to facilitate the exchange of multimedia data across generic internetworks. 1 Introduction Emerging distributed multimedia applications as video-on-demand and remote collaboration require efficient delivery of digital audio and video data. This is difficult to achieve with today's communication systems because of the high data v
