This class focuses on the recent advances on Internet media.
Different from the traditional
text-based Web contents, media objects are generally larger in size and
are less frequently updated once they are produced. With the rapid increasing
amount of Internet media objects, it is very important to understand
the current state-of-the-art of Internet media and related techniques.
In this class, we particularly focus on the recent advancement for the
Internet media distribution systems -- issues and techniques that are
related to how media contents are delivered to each client.
The following topics will be covered: Internet measurements about the
popularity of various media services on the Internet, quality of
different services; resource provisioning on the Internet for media
distribution in a client/server infrasturecture, or CDN/MDN, or P2P
systems; overlay multicasting for the Internet streaming; security and
privacy considerations in a media distribution system. We are going to
study these systems in depth by discussing merits and limits of
different systems and conflicts and synergy among different systems.
