On-Demand Regional Television over the Internet
We present a regional news on demand television service over the Internet developed for the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK), using a distributed video server and a WWW-integrated software-only MPEG-1 video player. Video is played directly over the net from the server source, thus avoiding download of a video file. As far as we know this is the first regular real-time news-on-demand service where a television station on a daily basis digitizes a full news transmission and makes it available to the public over the Internet. We describe the overall system architecture and outline the production process digitizing daily newscasts. The MPEG-1 video player developed in the project is described in some detail and the communication and audio/ video synchronization issues are discussed in particular. KEYWORDS Network-based MPEG Player, On-line Newscast, Production Infrastructure, Video-On-Demand.
