Effective VoD Service Distribution over Cable Television Networks


Lidia Jordanova, Jordan Nenkov


Vol. 10  No. 2  pp. 307-312


The paper deals with the concept for realizing a VoD system over cable television (CATV) networks in a way to ensure possibilities to increase the number of both the subscribers and the movies supported. An algorithm for the effective movie content distribution is suggested that makes the system reliable. Statistical investigations have been carried out to determine the distribution laws of the movies content duration, the file size and the drop in popularity of the series offered. The obtained results are discussed.
