Advanced Applications: Streaming Architecture for Very Large Collections of Demand Multimedia

Time 10/02/01 10:30AM-11:45AM

Session Abstract

As the streaming video and multi-media products mature and very large archives of materials are made available, it is necessary to develop whole system architectures and stable operation environments. Applying these requirements to new and leading-edge multimedia distribution requires developing robust and reliable, and efficient delivery systems and often the skills of a team of system architects, software engineers, network engineers and content specialists.
This panel will discuss building a complete end to end user experience--from behind the scenes archive and retrieval systems to rich media metadata construction. There will demonstrations of protoype architectures addressing many of the missing pieces of multimedia support of streaming and interactive web sites and an opportunity to discuss the integration of existing campus operations with these advanced applications.
