Empower yourself with rich media content such as video, audio, and associated data,
over Internet protocols.
Internet Media is an audio video broadcasting service transmitted via the Internet.
Broadcasting on the Internet is usually referred to as webcasting since it is not
transmitted broadly through wireless means but is delivered over the World Wide
Web. The term "e-Media" suggests a streaming medium that presents listeners with
a continuous stream of audio to which they have no control much like traditional
broadcast media. It is not synonymous with podcasting which involves downloading
and therefore copyright issues. Nor does e-Media suggest "on-demand" file serving.
Many Internet "Media stations" are associated with a corresponding traditional "terrestrial"
radio station or radio network. Internet-only radio stations are usually independent
of such associations.
Internet radio "stations" are usually accessible from anywhere in the world-for
example, to listen to an Australian station from Europe or America. This makes it
a popular service for expatriates and for listeners with interests not adequately
served by local radio stations (such as progressive rock, anime themed music, classical
music, 24-hour stand up comedy, and others). Some Internet radio services offer
news, sports, talkback, and various genres of music-everything that is on the radio
station being simulcast over the internet with a netcast stream.
