Video-on-demand (VoD) is an essential technology for many multimedia applications. However, it remains challenging to efficiently deliver on-demand streams to a large number of receivers in a heterogeneous network environment. Although a number of VoD broadcasting protocols have been proposed for heterogeneous receivers, these protocols considers only single-bit-rate VoD services, which cannot satisfy the diverse quality-of-service requirements of heterogeneous receivers. In this paper, we… CONTINUE READING
