even tussen alle drukte door:
we hebben een HD demo vod stream online gezet:
High Definition grade VOD web streaming
[HD] (+5Mbps) 720p
[SD] (+2Mbps) PAL
This MPEG-4 (H.264) video streams from our primary StreamZilla server
with 1Gbps backbone connection.
If your connection is fast (for HD it really should be fast) the
video should start immediately. Our office is at a 10Mbps
professional link and we can playback 2 HD streams simultaneously on
a single PC, without any buffering. We also have seen the server
burst up to 20Mbps per stream.
During playback, you can grab the slider and drag (or random click)
through the time bar. Note the realtime visual feedback and instant
playback. Even we are impressed! (Also impressed by the new dual core
CPU which allows us to actually encode a HD stream and playback 2 HD
streams simultaneously without noticeably hiccups :)
Note: for this demo you need at least 6Mbps professional internet
access (or 20Mbps consumer grade internet access), a powerful PC or
Mac, QuickTime 7 installed, at least a 1280x720 screen estate and a
bit of luck that the Internet offers enough bandwidth between our
server and your ISP.
To be able to distribute HD bandwidth VOD streams in volume to end
users, we are rolling out bigger core platforms. To transparently
redirect users to Edge VOD media servers we have redesigned our
'Rediraptor' tool. We now support global ISP IP-ranges that can be
matched to Edge servers, and of course we support multiple players
and other smart metadata, load balancing and referer tricks.
Anyone interesting in testing the new Rediraptor version can send an
email to rudo at jet-stream.nl
