Large-Scale Video-on-Demand Systems [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
DefinitionLarge-scale video-on-demand systems allow distributed users to interactively access video files from remote servers and consist of four components: video server, directory server, proxy server, and clients/set-top-box.IntroductionWith the advances in digital video technology and high speed networking, video-on-demand (VoD) services [1, 2] have come into practice in recent years. The VoD service allows geographically distributed users to interactively access video files from remote VoD servers. Users can request videos from a server at any time and enjoy the flexible control of video playback with VCR-like functions. Nevertheless, such systems have not yet been commercial success because server and network requirements are the limiting factors in the wide deployment of such services. Engineers have thus tried to minimize the resources requirement as well as increase the system scalability. There are mainly two approaches for building a large scale VoD sys ...
