MistServer

MistServer is a low-footprint, high-performance streaming media server. As a streaming media server, its main function is to "stream" media in various output protocols as opposed to simply offering files. This delivery method ensures a good viewing experience, while saving on bandwidth costs. The below sections explain in further detail what the full technical specifications of MistServer are and what you can expect from it.

Performance

We've started the Research Initiative to measure how current media servers are performing and if they're ready for future demands. The Research Initiative is something we do purely out of our own interest, we'll publish the results openly and are happy to talk about them. If any one wants to add to our papers you're welcome to contact us.
