Abstract: We evaluate the practicality of using for distance medical education the multimedia protocols which are used with the internet on the Wideband InterNetworking engineering test and Demonstration Satellite "Kizuna" (WINDS). It was found that protocols using TCP as the transport layer show high performance when TCP-Hybla is used for TCP congestion control, and that protocols using UDP as the transport layer show high performance with the Real Time Media Flow Protocol(RTMFP), which enabled the practical feasibility of secure distance medical education by satellite links to be demonstrated.
