With the advances in the computer and communication technology, multimedia communication has gradually become a key field. These advanced technologies deal with heterogeneous data, which is generally grouped into two broad categories: continuous media (e.g. audio and video) and discrete media (e.g. texts, data and images). When multiple sources of media are played back in real-time, maintaining and restoring correctly the temporal relations of these media objects at the destination is an important feature, known as multimedia synchronization.
