The JHelioviewer channel

Sun images are  arriving to the JHelioviewer servers continuously, almost in real time. This fact could be used to implement a live streaming video channel. For this reason, in this project we propose to implement a video streaming service based on the HTML5 language, which is able to manage video sequences over standard Web clients and servers. Users of the JHV-channel will watch a video of the last received images, using streaming (without play control). Several spatial/temporal resolutions of the live video will be available in order to minimize the cuts (temporal loss of video signal) in the emission by bandwidth limitations. A link in the Web page that shows the video will be available for launching the JHelioviewer client if the user is interested in visualizing with higher detail and control some part of the displayed video.
