The Block Allocation Problem in Video Servers
Recent advances in technology have made possible the development of inexpensive multimedia display stations . Rangan  noted that the cost of storing the material will require a high degree of reuse and sharing of video source material. This leads to the creation of large servers that serve large numbers of users . These server systems use computers to store and retrieve compressed digital video data which they then transmit over digital networks to client stations.
