This chapter describes an approach to a very complex subject of multimedia conversion. The authors hope to familiarize readers with the idea of multimedia objects transformation, especially time-dependent data (like video and audio streams). After a short introduction, the chapter gives fundamentals with broad references to the discussed field. The presented way of modeling conversions including an abstract model, categories of transformation and a processing model, leads to an application of the graph-based model in the deployment considering model-specific issues, functional correctness, scheduling, management of resources and admission control. RETAVIC and memo.REAL are ongoing projects and the means of evaluation of the models of conversion as well.
