The essential architecture is this. The centralized Windows server handles all streaming of full-res media from a SAN. This server has to have beefy NVIDIA cards in order to composite and add effects on-the-fly in real-time. This only happens at the "home base". So basically the server is running a satellite version of Premiere for every connected editor.

Then, this full-res stream is served up as a single-stream, low-res proxy file that is streamed to the editor who is connected long-distance. Whenever the stream is paused, the server adapts the bandwidth and feeds a single frame of full-res video, instead of the playback of a real-time proxy file. So the server is throttling the image quality based on demands and network load. Feeding a single frame of full-res video in pause, permits the editor to remotely adjust effects with some accuracy. Note that most (if not all) third party plug-ins are probably excluded for now.

When the cut is locked, a "publish" command (via AAF?) - back at the central server - encodes any master files and deliverables. So no full-res video actually travels between the Anywhere server and a remotely connected editor.
