Place Shifting

Definition - What does Place Shifting mean?

Place shifting is a technology in which a multimedia file is streamed to a remote computer or device from a local host device. It uses purpose-built software to enable Internet delivery of locally saved digital content to one or more supported devices.

Techopedia explains Place Shifting

Place shifting is included with a digital audio/video recorder (A/V) or similar solution used in home A/V solutions. Place shifting typically requires installation of each destination device with a client utility application. Upon enabling, the local or host device, such as a TV or video recorder, is remotely accessed by client devices. The local device streams and delivers the accessed content as a digital stream to these devices.

Additionally, a host device may stream live data, such as a TV or radio broadcast, to viewing/listening/destination devices.
