  3. 3. Agenda • Context for IIS Smooth Streaming • Breaking Down the Workflow • Next Steps
  4. 4. Context • Why not traditional delivery?
  5. 5. Traditional Distribution Hurdles Edge Server Streaming (Windows Media Services, Flash Media Server, QuickTime Streaming Server, Windows Media MBR, Flash Dynamic Streaming) Many one-to-one persistent sessions May require dedicated streaming servers Scalability an issue when demand tops provisioning May be disrupted by variable network conditions
  6. 6. Traditional Distribution Hurdles Edge Server Streaming Progressive Download (Windows Media Services, Flash Media Server, (Any standard Web or HTTP caching server) QuickTime Streaming Server, Windows Media MBR, Flash Dynamic Streaming) Hurdles similar to streaming, plus… Limited user experience Limited user tracking Wasted bandwidth (20% watched)
  7. 7. The "Last Mile" Challenge Low Bandwidth “Best quality I Fast CPU can download” Edge Server “Best quality I can render” High Bandwidth “Best quality, Slow CPU period ” Conditions High Bandwidth change every Fast CPU second The “Last Mile” from Server to Client
  8. 8. Context • Why not traditional delivery? • What is IIS Smooth Streaming?
