What is VOD-Video on Demand


The concept isn't new to the media world but with the increase in bandwidth and so many providers, videos are flooding the market , the awareness is surely on the high.
VoD can work well over a wide geographic region or on a satellite-based network as long as the demand for programming is modest. However, when large number of consumers demand multiple programs on a continuous basis, the total amount of data involved (in terms of megabytes) can overwhelm network resources.One way to sort this problem is to store programs on geographically distributed servers and provide programs to local users on request, a technology called store and forward. This approach increases the availability of the programming and the overall reliability of the system compared with the use of a single gigantic storehouse. Store and forward also allows local providers to maintain their systems and set up billing structures independently. Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) switching technology lends itself especially well to this application.
Examples- AmazonPrime, Netflix, Hulu, Go90, streamhash, HBO GO,Voot,Vidooly
