Overview: International Multimedia Telecommunications Consortium (IMTC) works to facilitate the availability of real-time, rich-media communications between people in multiple locations around the world. Rich media refers to converged communications sessions that incorporate voice and one-way (or two-way) data and one-way (or two-way) video. Members of this community include Internet application developers and service providers, teleconferencing hardware and software suppliers, telecommunications companies and equipment vendors, end users, educational institutions, government agencies and non-profit corporations. The IMTC (as of April, 2004) focuses on: promoting standards that enable real-time, rich-media communications; identifying obstacles to utilization of multimedia products and services; developing and submitting technology interoperability recommendations to official standards bodies; initiating scheduled interoperability test sessions between suppliers of rich-media products and services; and educating and promoting the business and consumer communities on the benefits and implementation of multimedia products.
