An investigation is made of the buffer requirements for a store-and-forward video on demand (VOD) service. In this service full motion video, compressed to about the 1.5-Mb/s rate, is stored in an information warehouse. It is then retrieved and delivered to the customer's local broadband integrated services digital network (B-ISDN) central office (CO) via 150-Mb/s trunks. In the CO the video information is buffered and is played to the customer in real-time at the DS-1 rate. The authors address… 

A novel scheme of transporting pre-stored MPEG video to support video-on-demand (VoD) services

Bandwidth resource optimization in video-on-demand network architectures

A VOD network solution based upon the Broadband Integrated Digital Network (B-ISDN) that targets the mass deployment of the IVOD service and offers the ability to cope with future types of multimedia services is presented.

A novel scheme of transporting pre-stored MPEG video in ATM networks

A novel scheme in the dynamic allocation of bandwidth to segments of video using ABR mode to ensure that the playback buffer neither underflows nor overflows and is tested with real-life MPEG video traces.

A Cost Comparison of Distributed and Centralized Approaches to Video-on-Demand

This work examines the costs of storage in VoD servers and develops an efficient allocation scheme designed to minimize this cost and concludes that a distributed approach to storage costs no more than a centralized approach and offers considerable advantages in terms of bandwidth requirements and service quality.

Traffic Analysis for a Custom Video Architecture

A custom news service is analyzed, and a network architecture that can support it is proposed and three approximate techniques capture the behavior of the system and are used for designing the network.

Multicast scheduling for VOD services

A new VOD service scheme is proposed that utilizes the dynamic multicasting capabilities of future networks and two scheduling algorithms are proposed: EDS (Earliest Deadline Scheduling) and MMS (Most Multicasting Scheduling).

This work proposes to use more statistics than the peak frame size of the stored video information to strictly guarantee the QOS requirement and to achieve potentially much higher throughput in two new types of admission control schemes for the VOD service.



A store-and-forward architecture for video-on-demand service

A store-and-forward architecture is presented that can provide video-on-demand (VOD) as well as other database distribution services. It assumes a B-ISDN network to be in place. The four major

The technological feasibility of a video on demand service that is provided from a centralized location over a digital network is examined and a solution to the database access problem is presented.

MPEG: a video compression standard for multimedia applications

Design of the MPEG algorithm presents a difficult challenge since quality requirements demand high compression that cannot be achieved with only intraframe coding, and the algorithm’s random access requirement is best satisfied with pure intraframes coding.

Characterizing Superposition Arrival Processes in Packet Multiplexers for Voice and Data

This paper analyzes a model of a multiplexer for packetized voice and data using the index of dispersion for intervals (IDI), which describes the cumulative covariance among successive interarrival times.

Architectural design of on-demand video delivery systems: the spatio-temporal storage allocation problem

The authors propose a stochastic model for video entities in the distribution system and pose a spatio-temporal allocation problem to minimize a general cost function that includes storage, transport, and processing costs.
