Technical solutions of Internet broadcasting
So-called "video stream" - a data stream containing video signal created by digitization of output television signal and coding of a chosen compression. Digitization and compression of signal are carried out on spot in the broadcasting vehicle. The data stream is then recorded on our video server located on the Czech Internet backbone. Your website is provided with a simple script running a video player in the window of your Internet browser. The video player is automatically redirected to our video server, which serves all viewers to download video streams. In this manner, the video will be played directly on your websites; these don't need to be reprogrammed, and playing the video will not increase the volume of downloaded data.
At present, our video server manages to distribute video signal up to 1,500 spectators at a time. This capacity is mostly sufficient, however, if a broader accessibility is required, we are able to duplicate the video server, and thus linearly increase maximum accessibility.
