This is an open meeting of the Internet2 Digital Video Initiative (I2DVI). The I2DVI is a Special Interest Group on the topic of Digital Video that is open to all.

David Devereaux-Weber will be talking about the video groups in the higher-ed community, including Vide, the Research Channel, I2DVI, I2 Research Channel Working Group, and the Open Student Television Network. Dave will also report on the Big Ten Network. Jonathan Tyman will report outcomes of the IPTV pre-conference workshop which is focused on developing a coordinated educational IPTV offering on a national scale. He will outline some of the benefits and challenges--technical, financial and political--of delivering commercial entertainment, international, and locally produced television programming over Internet2. These presentations will be followed by a chance for the audience to present short status reports of activities in which they are involved.
