Internet and TV (TeleVision)

Television signals provide a slideshow of images fast enough to fool our eye into believing we are seeing real motion. Film uses 24 frames and television uses 30 frames per second, and the combination of frame size used and the number of frames per second contains far more data than Internet data transfer can handle. There is not enough bandwidth. To give the appearance of video on a computer screen both the size of the frame, the number frames, and the quality or amount of data in any one frame is significantly reduced. Different programmers have implemented procedures in different ways, but none of them have a universal way to integrated time events. The first effort then must to introduce standards to allow more effective integration.


The World Wide Web Consortium is working on standards for integrating television broadcasts, as a well as a host of other related devices. Their TV development has been integrated with work under the topic of Device Independent Devices.

"Live Channel is the world's first software-only solution designed to replace a television studio, providing real-time editing, high quality encoding and real-time streaming in one integrated application."

Listen to Web TV Stations

This work is highly experimental. There is just this one site that I have found at this time that is open to all web users without special hardware or special connections. Contributions to this area are welcome.
