Residential Broadband Experiment
We have conducted a number of end-to-end video streaming playback tests between the Yima server in our lab and a client approximately 40 kilometers away. The client was linked to the Internet through an ADSL connection. The end-to-end raw bandwidth achieved was about 1Mbps. Tests were performed using an MPEG-4 encoded movie with a frame size of 720 x 576 pixels and 25 frames per second (fps). The stream required an average of 105 KB/s (840 Kb/s) bandwidth for both the video and audio layers.
