Content Distribution over IP: Options, Impacts, Opportunities

Time 09/29/04 10:30AM-11:45AM

Session Abstract

ResearchChannel explores both high bandwidth advanced applications and distribution methodologies to bring streaming video content to scientists, faculty, students, and the general public. ResearchChannel has not only pioneered efforts in streaming HDTV but also explores streaming technologies that support larger audiences with various network capabilities. Many new opportunities for distribution of video content exist and there are many factors that determine both the quality of the program and impact for viewers. The programming committee from ResearchChannel will present information and case studies on several options for delivering high-quality content to meet the needs of users with restricted bandwidths to Internet2. This panel presentation will include streaming examples of Video-On-Demand files that demonstrate how various production techniques and encoding formats effect the quality for viewers as much as the available bandwidth. The panel will demonstrate the effectiveness of new streaming media products such as Real Presenter, Microsoft Producer, and other streaming solutions. In addition to discussing the impacts of various technology choices, the panel will present the lessons learned from preparing media files for web distribution over Internet2 and commodity networks and other distribution methods such as DVD.
