The Technology of Video and Audio Streaming, Second Edition

"As one of the reviewers pointed out, this book is a "much-needed introduction to the breadth and depth of streaming media." I agree. For broadcasters and web developers involved in media delivery across the web, the book could be a very useful first step in understanding the basics of streaming technologies."
European Broadcasting Union, www.ebu.ch

"It can be concluded that streaming has become an important part of our lives and successfully complements traditional broadcasting for distributing video/audio content to some niche audiences.

We can recommend the second edition of this book to all broadcasters involved in webcasting and on-line services production, publishing and distribution." - EBU Technical Review (2nd Edition)
