The streaming course deals with a variety of aspects for media streaming in the Internet from a technology point of view. Starting from the low-level network aspects of real-time data transmission on packet-oriented networks, protocols and adaptive algorithms for streaming will be discussed. The course will also cover Quality-of-Service aspects, content-delivery networks and new upcoming media standards, like Digital Television or MPEG-21. Another aspect is voice over IP or Internet Telephony.
Participants are expected to either present a tutorial about proprietary solutions to their colleagues in class or to present a seminar talk on a special topic on media streaming. In addition, a fully-functioning streaming server will be set-up during the class to support the ALADIN services with audio and video streaming functions to the mobile client (PDA running .NET). All participants are expected to support the set-up of this infrastructure.
