1.7/11  Streaming Media 101, Part I: Bare Bones Technology
Amid the dreary doldrums of the online advertising business, a few bright spots do exist -- arenas in which there's seen to be great potential for development and growth. Among those areas is streaming media, which can wow consumers with audio and video advertisements that arguably pack the emotional wallop of comparable radio and television spots.
Streaming media, then, is like radio or television. Then again, it's not. As part of TurboAds.com's everlasting quest to demystify the latest online marketing vehicles -- their capabilities and the technology behind them -- we present Streaming Media 101, an exploration of this emerging form of rich media aimed at getting newcomers up to speed. Today, in part one, we get down to the bare bones -- the basics of the technology.
