Chapter 12. Real Media > Using RealServers

Using RealServers

RealServers deliver live, on-demand RealVideo, RealAudio, and RealFlash content. One RealServer can deliver clips to many users simultaneously. RealServers are available in several versions that can provide streaming media to several thousand users at the same time. RealServers run on Windows or Windows NT systems and impose fairly modest requirements on the hardware. A typical 120 MHz Pentium, for example, can deliver up to 400 simultaneous streams of video to 28.8 modem users.

A Web server is required to use a RealServer, but the Web server does not need to reside on the same machine as the RealServer software.
