This paper presents a hierarchical synchronization model for the description of the time relations and regimes necessary for the presentation of multimedia or animated data which have either natural or implied time dependencies. The model generalizes some previous multimedia synchronization models by unifying time and event based synchronization concepts and offering a consistent framework in which to handle dynamic media presentation functionality.
