Investigation on the quality of videoconferencing over the Internet and intranet environments

Danthuluri, Ravi (2003) Investigation on the quality of videoconferencing over the Internet and intranet environments. Other Degree thesis, Victoria University.


This study deals with the scope and feasibility of video-conferencing on the Internet and Intranet, for a real-time implementation of a classroom atmosphere linking different universities. I have considered the effects of various factors on video conferencing and different tests have been performed to study the data transfer during the online sessions. Readings of send rate, received rate and CPU load have been considered during these tests and the results have been plotted in the form of graphs. The study also gives conclusions at regular intervals on the tests performed and the limitations on various video confencing sessions. From the statistics collected I have concluded on the hardware requirements for optimized performance of video conferencing over the Internet. The study also states the scope of research to be undertaken in future for much better performance and understanding of different types of protocols. This thesis includes the study of various network-monitoring tools.
