We present a simple fixed-delay broadcasting (SFDB) protocol for video-on-demand. Our protocol assumes that each video to be broadcast will be partitioned into segments of equal duration to be transmitted over a fixed number of video channels. In addition, it requires all customers to wait for the same fixed delay before watching the video they have selected. Our protocol uses time-division multiplexing to obtain the best transmission schedule for the channel that broadcasts the first segments… CONTINUE READING
