IPTV Summit (Separate Registration Required)
Time 10/08/07 08:00AM-03:00PM
This workshop will examine the idea of a national educational IPTV offering with shared infrastructure, technology and content agreements. IPTV, in this context, includes commercial entertainment channels as well as international channels, free content and local insertion by RONS and universities. A basic implementation plan will be presented with plenty of room for input by all interested parties. Topics will include: whether such a nationally scaled offering is desirable and viable; how such an offering would be structured; what possible business models might apply; and how the various roles align with one another will be addressed. This workshop is the result of a ground swell of member interest and considerable preliminary activity. Active engagement by participants is encouraged.
