Overview of MyLiveTV Management System

Video data transfer calculation: Video size x (nb of viewers + 1) (I.E. 100MB x (100 + 1) = 10'100MB => 10.1 GB). Note that if viewers stop before the end of a video only the portion of video streamed between the start and stop click are counted.

Live stream data transfer calculation: ((video bit rate + audio bit rate)/8) x broadcast time x (nb of viewers + 1)/1'000'000 (I.E. ((200kbps + 48kbps)/8) x 3600sec x (100 + 1)/1'000'000 = 11.2716 GB.

Note that both, video and live stream data transfer are added to the 'Total Data Transfer (GB)'.

Data storage calculation: Sum of all videos and pictures uploaded.

Cumulated cost calculation: ('Data Transfer Used (GB)' + 'Data Storage Used (GB)').

x USD 0.50 (I.E. if Data Transfer is 100GB and Data Storage is 10GB, Cummulated cost will be USD 55.
