Confidential Technologies Multisourcing The media is segmented for delivery and can be served from multiple servers or devices simultaneously to render the video smoothly without any need to buffer Server-Assisted Peer Delivery The devices receiving a live broadcast form a peering overlay network where peers feed each other. Localized servers augment the delivery when the bitrate falls below a threshold at any peer Mesh Networking The overlay network formed by the devices peering the delivery is a mesh instead of a tree. This offers stability and redundancy against the failure of any peers. The video broadcast is available in spite of a significant churn in the peer devices. 16
Confidential Technologies Application Layer Multicasting The devices share live video segments over the mesh network built using application layer multicasting techniques. This enables only a few origin servers to support a large device base thereby providing a very scalable live broadcast solution. Centralized Control Plane The management of video delivery to every device can be controlled centrally. This provides easy management of the service not only by monitoring the logs but also by controlling the activities at each device. The control plane also provides an easy way to administer different overlay networking strategies as a network grows. 17
