Title
(EN) MEDIA DISTRIBUTION OVER A NETWORK
(FR) DISTRIBUTION MULTIMEDIA DANS UN RESEAU
Abstract
(EN) Techniques for encoding and distributing media over a network such as th Internet. A media source is received as input. A plurality of time segmented medi files are generated from the media source. The time segmented media files are compressed or decoded and distributed live, nearly live, or at a later time over the network.
(FR) L'invention se rapporte à des techniques de codage et de distribution multimédia dans un réseau de type Internet. On reçoit une source multimédia comme entrée. Plusieurs fichiers multimédia segmentés temporellement sont générés depuis la source multimédia. Les fichiers multimédia segmentés temporellement sont comprimés ou décodés et distribués en direct, en quasi direct ou ultérieurement dans le réseau.
