Streaming Media
STREAMING MEDIA is multimedia that is constantly received by and presented to an end-user while being delivered by a provider. The verb "to stream" refers to the process of delivering or obtaining media in this manner; the term refers to the delivery method of the medium, rather than the medium itself, and is an alternative to file downloading , a process in which the end-user obtains the entire file for the content before watching or listening to it. A client end-user can use their media player to begin to play the data file (such as a digital file of a movie or song) before the entire file has been transmitted. Distinguishing delivery method from the media distributed applies specifically to telecommunications networks , as most of the delivery systems are either inherently streaming (e.g. radio , television , streaming apps or inherently non-streaming (e.g. books , video cassettes , audio CDs )

Broadcasting
BROADCASTING is the distribution of audio or video content or other messages to a dispersed audience via any electronic mass communications medium , but typically one using the electromagnetic spectrum (radio waves ), in a one-to-many model. Broadcasting began with AM radio , which came into popular use around 1920 with the spread of vacuum tube radio transmitters and receivers . Before this, all forms of electronic communication (early radio , telephone , and telegraph ) were one-to-one, with the message intended for a single recipient. The term _broadcasting_, borrowed from the agricultural method of sowing seeds in a field by casting them broadly about, was coined by either KDKA manager Frank Conrad or RCA historian George Clark around 1920 to distinguish this new activity of "one-to-many" communication; a single radio station transmitting to multiple listeners

Web Conferencing
WEB CONFERENCING may be used as an umbrella term for various types of online collaborative services including web seminars ("webinars"), webcasts , and peer-level web meetings.
