Intel Media for Java* enables developers to create media-rich applications that can run either inside an Internet browser, as a stand-alone application, or on a Connected PC. With Intel Media for Java, developers can program to APIs that are both cross-platform and high-performance, providing the best possible user experience for the largest group of Web clients Intel processor-based PCs running Windows* 95 and Windows NT* while scaling to the capabilities of the connection and the processor.
This means that multimedia-enhanced Web applications can run over both lower-speed Internet and high-bandwidth intranet connections, using both today's and tomorrow's PCs. Since Intel Media for Java is a high performance, native method implementation, applets and applications benefit from the highly optimized and mature Windows infrastructure, while also transparently taking advantage of platform advances such as Intels MMXÔ technology.
