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.
