Abstract

High throughput video serving system operative to serve a multiplicity of set-top boxes (10) with a corresponding multiplicity of selected video items via transmission equipment (20) comprising an on-line storage subsystem comprising a first plurality of on-line storage units (30) arranged in at least one virtual circle and storing a second plurality of video items, each video item comprising a sequence of video blocks, each video block being accessible within a single system tick, wherein, for each individual video item, sequential blocks are stored in sequential on-line storage units (30) in each virtual circle and an access system (50) connecting the on-line storage subsystem to the multiplicity of set-top boxes (10) via the transmission equipment (20), wherein an individual set-top box (10) is initially connected to the on-line storage unit which contains the first block of its corresponding selected video item and wherein the individual set-top box (10) is subsequently connected to a sequential on-line storage unit at each sequential system tick.
