TERENA Networking Conference 2000    

Streaming Technologies: under the hood

Egon M. Verharen, SURFnet, The Netherlands

This presentation aims to give you more insight into what it takes to deliver 'digital video' over today's and tomorrow's IP networks. Afterwards you will be no stranger to terms like 'content production', 'asset management', and 'content deployment'. Besides the most important standards, architectures, formats and tools of streaming technology also network-related aspects and requirements like multicast and Quality of Service will be described. Furthermore some examples of streaming video applications as deployed in NRNs in The Netherlands, Finland and the United States will be presented. Finally we will take a look into the future and see where streaming services can take us when bandwidth is plentiful and (almost) free.
