Advanced Applications-Video: NUTV: Television Without a TV

Time 10/15/03 01:15PM-02:30PM

Session Abstract

Faced with a costly cable plant build and small dorm rooms, Northwestern University needed a way to deliver cable television content to students over existing infrastructure. NUTV delivers 20+ channels of content to 4350 students in their dorm rooms over the campus data network. Using IP multicast and a web-based front end, students now watch their favorite shows right on their computer screen. In this presentation we will address the infrastructure requirements, service deployment, support issues of the service and highlight Internet2-based collaborations for content distribution such as the Northwestern CSPAN project.
