Resource Provisioning for Prerecorded Video

  • George Kesidis


Video connections consist of a sequence of coded frames. The framework of prerecorded video transmission over ATM is illustrated in Figure 6.1. A video server fetches digital prerecorded video sequences (or “traces”) from a disk drive (or digital tape player or laser disc player). Video traces are transmitted by the server through the ATM network. Prior to transmission, each video frame is segmented into ATM cells.
