IP/TV Server and number of sessions

Hi, I was curious if there is a general prediction rule for how meny concurrent sessions a server can have? The givens would be type of SCSI drives, MPU speed, LAN connection speed etc.

Also, can IP/TV server support more than one encoder card such as the Optibase?

Re: IP/TV Server and number of sessions

IPTV server can stream up to 70MBPS on a 100 MB switch port. The total number of users that could be watching varies widely depending on whether those streams are either unicast or multicast so there is no general rule. IPTV ver 3.2 can support up to 4 Optibase capture cards.
