Automatic Multimedia Improvement Calibration

       A methodology is described which allows distributed
multimedia objects to be received in a configurable preferred form by
a recipient.

      For example, voice recordings distributed to a user may
demonstrate that an increase in volume is required when played on the
user's audio device, especially when originated from a particular set
of senders. It is desirable to have the voice recordings played
automatically at the user's desired volume without making the user
initiate anything. Another example is a user receives video
distributions from sources which usually send videos requiring more
contrast, brightness and/or color changes. This methodology
automatically improves video characteristics before or during video
presentation.

      The present article maintains user preferred configurations for
the full range of media which can be distributed to the user.
Configurations set preferred values for media attributes which
typically vary among users. These preferred values are compared with
incoming attributes of video distributed media to allow dynamic
change of the attributes for rendering to the recipient. Multimedia
objects with associated characteristics can have those
characteristics automatically changed so that the recipient can view
the object in his desired format. Essential elements for
implementation are:
      O    Method of obtaining media attributes from media
      O    Method of...
