Quicktime TV

in Mac Software edited January 2014
From Apple.com:

CUPERTINO, California?July 22, 2002?Approximately 50,000 people used QuickTime® to watch Apple?s July 17 live webcast of Steve Jobs? Macworld New York 2002 keynote, which was simulcast in both QuickTime 5 and QuickTime 6. The QuickTime 6 stream was the first ever large-scale web event in the new MPEG-4 open standard and was delivered using a complete end-to-end Apple solution. Four new Apple Xserve? servers using the new QuickTime Streaming Server 4.1, QuickTime Broadcaster® and QuickTime 6 player software delivered MPEG-4 formatted content to 25,000 of the total viewers.

So 4 Xserves and Quicktime Broacaster can serve 25,000 viewers! I think we're on the dawn of the 5 million channel universe.

Does anyone have any idea how much bandwidth is required to attempt something like this?
