The WWW(World Wide Web) is one of the most popular services in the Internet. The easy accessibility and hypertext characteristics make it possible. Nowadays the multimedia data is to be delivered via WWW. The infrastructure of the web, however, is not sufficient to satisfy the demand of the multimedia service. Due to the native requirements of the multimedia data, the quality of service is not acceptable to the public.
However, the delivery of the compressed digital audio data on the Internet is now fully supported in good quality. It becomes possible mainly thanks to the excellent compression techniques of the digital audio and the efficient transmission protocol. The most popular type of the audio service is the Internet radio broadcasting service. The service needs a high-performance server system and a scalable broadcasting server software to cover the large number of the listeners.
This paper describes the implementation of a Personal Internet Broadcast Server which can be used by novice and poorly equipped users. Easy use, operation, and management are the main themes in designing the Personal Internet Broadcast Server. The target volume of the listeners is about thirties. It is implemented with the Microsoft's WMT(Windows Media Technology) technology.
