The convergence of the Internet and traditional TV is being accelerated through the concept of streaming video (also known as video-on-demand). Having started at the size of a postage stamp, increased bandwidth and better compression techniques now enable full screen, CD-quality video and audio to be transmitted over today's advanced research networks. This session highlights some recent developments in the application of streaming technology.
