Unlike any video producer to consumer point-to-point solution, NiFTy scales.
The NFT Node Engine and Viewer can be directly downloaded from a broadcaster's site and begin to immediately participate in any event on the NFT Application Multicast network.
A purely application layer solution requires no kernel patches, root-kits, or drivers to be installed on a computer, tablet, smart phone or home network router.
Because NiFTy viewer's nodes (anonymously) share what they are watching with their network neighbors that are watching the same thing, as the number of viewers expands, the number of viewers that can watch simultaneously also expands.
The NiFTy IP portfolio fully envision scenarios where the NFT technology is embedded within a (for example) Settop Box or Smart TV. Multiple NiFTy Nodes can be run in parallel to allow household participation in multiple broadcasts simultaneously.
As new client devices emerge, new form factors are brought to market, and broadcaster end delivery platform preferences change, NiFTy's technology will be able to be rapidly adapted to those new requirements by taking advantage of its implementation in the nearly universally available C++ language.
