tool, communications A program from Real Media for playing
audio over the Internet, and the lossy audio compression
format it uses.
The system is implemented as a client/server architecture.
The RealAudio server incorporates an encoder which
compresses sound into RealAudio files. The client side is a
web browser plug-in or add-on (a recent version of
Internet Explorer apparently has built-in support for
RealAudio) which allows the stream of data sent from the
server to be uncompressed and output using the normal sound
facilities of the computer, such as a sound card.
