Page 1 of 1
Streaming media company INTERVU Inc. said Tuesday it expects to receive two patents for its technology that streams audio and video over the Internet.
The company has been issued notices of allowance for two patent applications, typically the last step before an patent is issued. INTERVU's first patent application is for its method of storing, organizing and managing large amounts of audio and video for delivery across the Internet. The patent also covers INTERVU's method of distributed delivery, which channels the content through various data centers to minimize network congestion.
The second patent covers INTERVU's delivery client software, which delivers the audio and video from the company's network to an individual's personal computer.
INTERVU's network is comprised of a variety of data centers that are positioned near Internet backbones and are designed to optimize online video and audio delivery. Users receive the audio and video content through the Internet from the delivery center that is closest to them.
