Parallel Video Servers: A Tutorial
April-June 1998 (vol. 5 no. 2)
pp. 20-28
In conventional video-on-demand (VoD) systems, compressed digital video streams are stored in a video server for delivery to receiver stations over a communication network. This article introduces a framework for the design of parallel video server architectures and addresses three central architectural issues: video distribution architectures, server striping policies, and video delivery protocols.
Index Terms:
Parallel video server, video-on-demand, scalability, fault tolerance
