RealNetworks Global

RealNetworks acted as a pioneer in the streaming media industry since the early 1990鈥檚 with the introduction of Real Data Transport (RDT) a proprietary transport protocol for the actual audio-video data. In 1995 RealNetworks introduced RealAudio庐, the first audio streaming solution for the Internet. With further innovation steps RealVideoTM was developed and became what is now known as the RealPlayer庐.
