Free registration required

Executive Summary

Coding techniques are progressively succeeding in finding a beneficial use throughout all the components of advanced multimedia streaming networks, including Peer-To-Peer (P2P) content distribution strategies. In fact, although P2P algorithms are regarded as an important technology that will be part of future commercial Internet Protocol TeleVision (IPTV) platforms, it has been shown that their ability to efficiently distribute multimedia streams within strict time constraints, and their robustness to high churn rates, can still improve when putting to good use source and network coding algorithms.
