Paper Abstract

An experimental video server for middle-scale video-on-demand services that uses a 'redundant double-layered disk array' can read out 100 MPEG-1 1.5-Mbps video streams simultaneously with a response time of under one second through an FDDI-LAN. An exclusive data method that switches between normal data and fast data and a skip-search method are used to provide fast visual search. The gateway connecting the video server LAN to a 6.312-Mbps constant bit-rate line allows broadcast services to be integrated with on- demand services. The protocol implemented in this gateway controls the visual search rate, corrects errors in downloaded data, and accelerates the playback mode changes.
