Streaming Media

As technology advances, the transmission of data has moved from the traditional radio and television format to now include the internet. Satellites are being used to transmit media all over the world and as such news takes seconds to reach any place on any continent at any time. This live transmission of live multimedia has revolutionized how we receive information. Streaming media is multimedia that is continuously received by and displayed to the end-user while it is being delivered by the provider. As a newscast is being delivered, persons can see it live. The same applies for games (like football and tennis matches) or any other type of media that is usually transmitted.

Many companies stream media over the internet while charging a subscription for the service. The media can also be streamed in delayed format, i.e. the person who wishes to obtain the media can see it in recorded format, streamed from the server of the provider. Having this type of access to information makes life easier for everyone and saves time and money in the long run. Streaming media is becoming the mode of choice of many media houses as it is quick and in most cases does not pose any problems in terms of data loss (except where the connection may have problems) and connectivity. Streaming media can be accessed by televisions, radios, computers, PDA’s, laptops, and so on. And as we move into the 22nd century, it will become even better.

Media Streaming Over The Internet

Once upon a time, in order for someone to hear the news on radio they had to go over to a friend’s house that had a radio (radios were very rare). In like manner, television too had to be watched in the same manner. Then there came a time when everybody could afford to put a TV (black and white) and radio (sometimes quite heavy and cumbersome) in their own house. As technology made life much simpler for us all, we can now walk around with a radio in our pockets, with some cellular phones having a radio as part of the package. Televisions have also become portable with watch-like TV’s becoming very trendy.

In today’s busy world, not everyone has the time to actually go and listen to a radio and watch a television set. This results in many persons missing the news or sports or whatever other program they may have wanted to watch. For such people, there is the internet which has sites that offer streaming media of programs that have been broadcasted previously. In addition, live media streaming, both audio and video, is available from a number of websites. This revolution has made it possible for people in different countries to receive audi and video media streamed seamlessly over the internet at any time they want.

Just like how a webcam gives you live access to whom ever you are talking to, live media streamig provides the same advantage. As time goes by, I am sure we can expect to see greater heights reached in the streaming of audi and video media over the onternet.
