Interactive Streaming is perhaps the most FUN one can have on the net. Many in the internet industry believe that this is taking and will continue to take the internet to entirely new levels, because it raises the level of involvement of each individual to become more connected with others on the internet. This is also one of the fastest growing sectors within the Streaming Industry.
What is INTERACTIVE STREAMING?
With Broadcasting or Live Webcasting, the viewer can only simply sit, watch and listen. Broadcasting and Live Webcasting is similar to watching TV or listening to the Radio. Its a one way relationship, from the transmitter of the data to the viewer. The viewer has no say or input at all with regard to the media being streamed.
Interactive Streaming is where both parties receive and send streams at the same time. You interact with those streaming data to you by streaming back a video, audio or text. All this is done in Real Time and Live.
With the internet, there is a delay with any Interactive Streaming event. The BANDWIDTH section covers issues such as these delays. Bandwidth is an important subject, and recommended reading.
What is TWO-WAY INTERACTIVE STREAMING?
Simply put, it is a video-conference or video-phone (Being able to receive a video of someone talking and you can also send a video to them back at the same time) over the internet. Or imagine that you can type to them as they talk. That's 2-way Interactive Streaming, or a 1 to 1 interactive relationship.
In the wake of the September 11, 2001 attack in New York and Washington, many businesses have conatcted companies listed on this site to install internet conferencing for business meetings between two separate locations. It saves time and money in terms of travel costs.

What is MULTI-DIRECTIONAL INTERACTIVE STREAMING?
Imagine being able to receive a live video/audio of a politician talking about a subject. At the same time you can also type questions to him/her as he/she talks. You, along with 70 other people are watching the same video and also typing questions/comments to the politician, or to each other. That's multi-directional Interactive Streaming, which can be a 1 to many interactive relationship or a many to many interactive relationship.
