Enterprise Content Delivery Network with Multicast

August 17, 2017 | 83 views

IBM Cloud Video streaming solutions support video delivery over a multicast-enabled network, and that opens up useful new options.Multicast routing protocol, or just multicast, is a group communication protocol enabling data to be efficiently transmitted over the network. It is particularly suitable for distributing live audio or video streaming data. Here’s how it works:In traditional unicast delivery, a unique video stream must travel from the source to each viewer. With multicast delivery, the source sends a single copy of the video stream data to a multicast address, which then distributes packets to all interested recipients. The network routers between the source and recipients use multicast group membership information to calculate when to duplicate packets. As a result, bandwidth use is minimized.

Microsoft’s xCloud game streaming arrives on iOS with some Apple restrictions

Article | February 14, 2022

Microsoft is expanding its Project xCloud service to the iPhone today. The software giant is launching a beta of xCloud through Apple’s TestFlight service, allowing xCloud testers to try the service on an iPhone or iPad. It’s the first time we’ve seen a cloud game streaming service appear on iOS since the days of OnLive — and OnLive’s iOS app wound up in limbo when Apple didn’t approve it. Google’s Stadia and Nvidia’s GeForce Now are still not available on Apple’s devices, either, and neither company has been able to tell us when that might change.

"[It] may be beneficial for the VR headset to be able to detect when a head-worn device (e.g., headset, eyeglasses, headphones, etc.) is being removed from the user's head, is being placed on the user's head, or both," says Apple in US Patent No. 10,557,724, "Angle detection of a rotating system using a single magnet and multiple hall sensors."

The Future of Tech: Gaming Consoles, the Xbox and PlayStation of Tomorrow

Article | February 10, 2020

Consoles have come a very long way since the arrival of first-generation machines from Atari and Coleco in the seventies. Even the original PlayStation (1994) and Xbox (2001) look dated compared to the 4K/HDR-capable machines of today, and that divide will grow even larger once the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X arrive at the end of 2020. But what about the future? More than once console makers have tried to break new ground, by focusing on functionality beyond gaming, but for the most part those attempts have failed. Nintendo has found the most success with specialized hardware that still focuses on games first, while Sony and Microsoft have seemingly understood that building powerful general purpose machines that are akin to PCs is their best and safest bet.
