About StreamNet Technology
StreamNet Technology is a solution from the ground up for real time media streaming and control over Internet Protocol. StreamNet was conceived with the notion that the Internet provides a means for the consumption and distribution of rich media content and control to anyone anywhere.
In fact, the StreamNet context is that sources may or may not exist within the same premises as the devices on the network. Instead, these devices can come and go from a premise, they can be only online, or they can live in the premise scattered around a physical location or simply streamed in by demand over the ubiquitous broadband connection.
StreamNet is built upon a foundation of a fully network connected device. StreamNet devices look like any other network connected device on a network, you can look for their IP address, you can browse to them, you can even interrogate them like a network device to determine their status. On top of this strong base that is provided by the IP network StreamNet adds a number of important benefits.
StreamNet distributes uncompressed and compressed audio and video PLUS control over additional devices synchronized across any number of multiple zones without any centralized control point or matrix switch. Additionally, StreamNet devices self-configure on the network and they can manage and assign their own IP addresses, advertise their capabilities to other devices on the network and discover the capabilities of any other device on the network. This enables easy provisioning and simple maintenance while providing incredible flexibility.
The control in the StreamNet system is completely decentralized. The removal of any one device or user interface does not impact the system – the other devices simply work to build logical connections between devices.
