Direct3D Definition

Direct3D Definition Direct3D is an application program interface (API) developed by Microsoft that provides a set of commands and functions for manipulating 3D objects. By using Direct3D commands, software developers can take advantage of many prewritten functions. This allows programmers to write significantly less code than if they had to write all the functions from scratch. Direct3D makes it relatively easy to manage three-dimensional objects, including lighting and shadows as well. In o...

Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP)

Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP): RTSP is an application-level protocol for the transfer of real-time media data. The protocol is used to establish and control media sessions between end points by serving as a network-remote-control for time-synchronized streams of continuous media such as audio and video. RTSP was developed by the Multiparty Multimedia Session Control Working Group (MMUSIC WG) of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and publishe...

Application Streaming

Application Streaming Application streaming is an on-demand software delivery model that takes advantage of the fact that most applications require only a small fraction of their total program code to run. Like progressive downloads in video or audio, application streaming is completely transparent to the end user. The server sends the client enough information to launch the application (usually as little as 10% of the application) and then streams the rest to the client in the backgroun...

API – Application Program Interface

API - Application Program Interface Application program interface (API) is a set of routines, protocols, and tools for building software applications. An API specifies how software components should interact. Additionally, APIs are used when programming graphical user interface (GUI) components. A good API makes it easier to develop a program by providing all the building blocks. A programmer then puts the blocks together. Different Types of APIs There are many different types of APIs f...
