In this paper, we proposed a multimedia hardware architecture for video-conferencing in view of the multimedia data flow. By simulating the architecture model, we analyzed the bottleneck of multimedia data flow, varying video size, frame rate, number of participants, and video data compression rate. To confirm the simulation results, we also implemented and tested the architecture that almost includes the analyzed requirements for video- conferencing. From the analysis of I/O system, we found the considerations in designing a multimedia I/O system.
