The AllCast software-based platform provides peer-to-multipeer content distribution for the content webcaster that also allows the content owner to maintain a 'cascading' environment. The new network distribution model represented by AllCast is based on its own patented technology (US5884031) to ensure that there are no bandwidth or server bottlenecks regardless of the size of the stream or audience. AllCast claims that its technology can enable content-providers with the ability to webcast easily and securely in a scalable fashion that allows a maximum number of listeners or viewers to participate for a much lower cost than most currently-deployed live Internet broadcasting systems (audio or video, narrow or broadband). AllCast's streaming media broadcast technology provides the passive conduit functions necessary to ensure that content is delivered to end users in a quality fashion.
