Enhancing our quality

Dur­ing the course of this week we have been broad­cast­ing exper­i­men­tal­ly at 128 kilo­bits per sec­ond instead of our usu­al 96 kb/s, which we hope is result­ing in your enjoy­ing a high­er qual­i­ty lis­ten­ing expe­ri­ence.

Assum­ing that these tests are suc­cess­ful, we intend to increase our stan­dard trans­mis­sion rate to 128 kb/s in the near future.

We would be most grate­ful for any com­ments you have about these tests, for exam­ple unusu­al stream dis­rup­tions, and espe­cial­ly if you are in-world at the time.

Eigh­teen months ago we deter­mined that 96 kb/s rep­re­sent­ed a good com­pro­mise between audio qual­i­ty and load­ing for lis­ten­ers in-world, where the View­er can take much of the avail­able band­width leav­ing lit­tle for media streams. We believe that over the inter­ven­ing peri­od, aver­age band­width avail­abil­i­ty and the pow­er of lis­ten­ers’ com­put­ers have increased to a point where we can safe­ly offer a high­er qual­i­ty audio expe­ri­ence with­out com­pro­mis­ing avail­abil­i­ty in-world.

Thank you for lis­ten­ing to Radio Riel!
