The Technology of Video and Audio Streaming, Second Edition

"As one of the reviewers pointed out, this book is a "much-needed introduction to the breadth and depth of streaming media." I agree. For broadcasters and web developers involved in media delivery across the web, the book could be a very useful first step in understanding the basics of streaming technologies."
European Broadcasting Union, www.ebu.ch

"It can be concluded that streaming has become an important part of our lives and successfully complements traditional broadcasting for distributing video/audio content to some niche audiences.

We can recommend the second edition of this book to all broadcasters involved in webcasting and on-line services production, publishing and distribution." - EBU Technical Review (2nd Edition)

* Learn the end-to-end process, starting with capture from a video or audio source through to the consumer's media player
* A quick-start quide to streaming media technologies
* How to monetize content and protect revenue with digital rights management

For broadcasters, web developers, project managers implementing streaming media systems, David Austerberry shows how to deploy the technology on your site, from video and audio capture through to the consumer's media player.

The book first deals with Internet basics and gives a thorough coverage of telecommunications networks and the last mile to the home. Video and audio formats are covered, as well as compression standards including Windows Media and MPEG-4. The book then guides you through the streaming process, showing in-depth how to encode audio and video. The deployment of media servers, live webcasting and how the stream is displayed by the consumer's media player are also covered.

A final section on associated technologies illustrates how you can protect your revenue sources with digital rights management, looks at content delivery networks and provides examples of successful streaming applications.
