7.1. SureStream

SureStream technology is a vastly improved method for streaming media. SureStream eliminates the breaks in media transmission due to changes in network conditions, such as a drop in throughput from 50 Kbps per second to 20 Kbps. In previous versions, the RealPlayer buffered a certain amount of data in the queue before it began to play. If the connection rate declined, the stream would still play. However, if it played the contents of the queue before the connection resumed, a break in the transmission would occur until more data was received.

G2's SureStream technology makes possible a dynamic bandwidth-detection relationship between the client and server throughout the serving process. When encoding a RealAudio or RealVideo file, the G2 encoder creates several embedded copies of the file at varying discrete data rates. The server then has the ability to dynamically switch streams based on the client's changing bandwidth conditions.
