Real-Time Audio and Video Transmission of IEEE Globecom'96 over the Internet

Colin Perkins and Jon Crowcroft

Presented at the IEEE Engineer's Conference at Networld+Interop, Las Vegas, NV, USA, May 1997.

The paper describes the experience of transmitting of proceedings of IEEE Globecom'96 conference in London, England, over the Internet, using the Mbone and SoftwareVision systems. We discuss the configuration issues involved, and problems encountered, together with techniques by which such problems may be identified and solved. This event showed that, whilst Internet broadcasting is clearly still an evolving technology, it is usable today, and has considerable potential for growth in the future.
