This script creates a server streaming data rate value of the bandwidth time required for a specific number of viewers, watching a streaming media event for an average amount of time, over a given number of days. A data rate is the flow of data measured in bits across a network, through an Internet connection, or from and I/O device such as a disk drive; in this case, it is from an Internet server. For sample client download times, try our Connection Speed - Download Speed Calculator. As a matter of clarification, bits follow the metric system in the 1000 bits is a Kilobit (kb) while a Kilobyte (KB) is 1024 bytes. Click on the anticipated number of viewers at one time. Then choose a bit rate connection for the type of server streaming media. Enter the average viewer's participating in the event. Enter the number of contiguous days (days in a row) that the event runs. Click on Calculate to determine the amount of bandwidth in megabytes (MB).
