Vividas Launches Video Streaming Software

Jan 24, 2006

Vividas Group, plc, a developer and provider of video streaming technology, has announced the launch of The Vividas Sniffer--Automatic Bandwidth Detection Software, which allows for "one click" to launch full screen video over the Internet.

By detecting the download time to a 10KB test component, the Vividas Sniffer calculates the bandwidth available to the user and selects the appropriate sized file to stream. While buffering, a second check takes place and confirms that the correct file has been chosen, providing an alternative bit rate file if necessary. The result is a launch of full screen video online.
