Streaming is the process of constantly delivering the data (audio or video streams) to an end-user by a provider. An end-user can use their media player to start playing the data file (such as a digital file of a movie or song) before the entire file has been transmitted.
Multiscreen refers to the ability to display video content on a range of different devices. By transforming the content into multiple bit rates, formats and resolutions, the content is available on a wide range of devices such as the television set, mobile phones, tablets, computers, laptops and game consoles. Operators can deliver video content through their managed network, or over-the-top with the use of a third party transport service. Generally speaking, TV Everywhere technology makes use of unicast IP delivery.
End-users expectations of a TV or video service have evolved. End-users expect access to their TV service at home, on the road, on vacation and even outside. Day by day end-users are getting more engaged to mobile devices resulting in a vast change in the way end-users consume video content. Even though TV is the leading player in the way we consume video content today, viewing behaviors are changing rapidly and are radically different from what they were just a couple of years ago. Nowadays, video can be accessed and viewed on a wide range of devices, TV operators can’t stay behind. Multiscreen is the solution which is also known as TV Everywhere.
