Experiment: P2P Live Audio streaming van de Prix Europa

Iemand van EBU vroeg me om dit op het web te plaatsen:

Ter gelegenheid van het Prix Europa openingsconcert op Zaterdag 15 oktober 2005 om 20h in Berlijn, organiseert de EBU een streaming experiment in samenwerking met Octoshape. De stroom zal ter beschikking zijn op de volgende webstek:

OctoShape is een nieuwe technologie die gebruik maakt van een P2P (peer to peer) aanpak en die een kostefficiente en hoge kwaliteits distributie van mediastromen over het internet naar verscheidene simultane luisteraars.
De volgende stromen zijn beschikbaar:

  • Windows Media 9 aan 96 kbit/s stereo, afspeelbaar door Windows Media player

  • AAC Plus op 64 kbit/s stereo, afspeelbaar door WinAmp player of itunes

De efficientie van het OctoShape systeem hangt af van het aantal luisteraars. Hoe meer gebruikers, hoe beter het systeem performeert.

Vraag dus aan je collegas en vrienden om ook te luisteren.
