Video Transmission Strategies for Large-Scale Video-on-Demand System [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
DefinitionVideo transmission strategies define the way on how the video contents can be delivered to clients. Existing strategies base on unicast and multicast/broadcast paradigm.Unicast is the simplest way to deliver video contents over a video-on-demand (VoD) system. Each client generates a request for the desired video to the server. Once this request has been accepted, the server allocates a dedicated channel to this client who can acquire a full control right for this channel. However, such approach incurs very high costs of the system and lack of scalability. In fact, if the server does not have sufficient resources to support the request, the client may either wait in the system or is blocked from the system. To conserve server resources and improve the system performance, the exploitation of the multicast/broadcast capabilities of the network has been investigated.In recent years, a number of periodic broadcast protocols have been proposed to exploit the broadcast fac ...
