The uses and benefits of video streaming

Video streaming may soon become one of the most popular Internet technologies. By far the most commonly used video streaming technology is Video on Demand (VOD). It allows viewers to access streaming video files using their web browser. However, potential uses for video streaming also include things like virtual classrooms and remote surgery.

Two-way video web conferencing is no longer the future, it’s now. We can try it ourselves using newer instant messaging systems like MSN Messenger. Of course, the quality of such video streaming is usually very low to the point of being barely recognizable, but it can still be used to transfer live images over long distances.

Improving the quality of two-way video conferencing will require the use of dedicated servers with low bandwidth. They are extremely useful for maintaining business conferences.

The ultimate task facing video streaming technology is to allow surgeons to operate on patients from remote locations. This is not yet the reality, as it would require such a high bandwidth that it is still impossible to achieve. They will need to enable doctors to remotely control surgical equipment, as well as receive high-quality continuous visual, auditory and instrumental feedback.

So far, streaming video technology is reliable enough to allow doctors to remotely consult with each other and patients, as well as give advice during surgery. This is a great benefit for all medical facilities located in sparsely populated areas. Consultations and contacts with patients on the Internet save time and costs of transporting the patient to an urban treatment center.

The most popular video streaming application is VOD. VOD video files can be hosted by any server and can be accessed by anyone with a computer and some kind of internet connection.

Easy access can be extremely useful for all types of users, but especially for schools and universities, enabling teachers to archive classroom materials. The lectures can then be accessed at any time by any student. Moreover, they are easily supplemented with additional materials. Also, those distance learning universities rely heavily on video streaming technology.

Overall, VOD is a very convenient tool for any large institution that needs to distribute educational materials. Unlike university television, lectures can be paused, rewound and reviewed, making the whole learning process much more efficient. This is why sometimes educational videos are actually more effective than typical classroom instruction.

Just about anything that can become part of the footage can be stored on a web server and posted on the Internet, including entertainment videos, business meetings, political speeches or “virtual tours” that allow users to see the layout of a particular building .

Another possible use is security. Live video streaming can also help monitor remote locations. At first glance, this is similar to typical security cameras, except that the streaming technology does not need closed circuits. The video can be watched from virtually anywhere in the world, provided there is an internet connection nearby.
