We present the design and implementation of a new programming language for media-intensive applications called Flavor (Formal Language for Audio-Visual Object Representation). It is an extension of C++ and Java in which the typing system is extended to incorporate bitstream representation semantics. This allows to describe in a single place both the in-memory representation of data as well as their bitstream-level (compressed) representation as well. We have developed software tools (www.ee. columbia.edu/flavor) that automatically generate standard C++ and Java code from the Flavor source code, so that direct access to compressed multimedia information by application developers can be achieved with essentially zero programming
