Video over Internet2: Moving Beyond Streaming and Videoconferencing

Time 10/14/08 08:45AM-10:00AM

Session Abstract

The infrastructure of Internet2 and the regional optical networks has provided users with an unprecedented level of bandwidth and service quality for a range of applications such as videoconferencing and video streaming. These uses are valuable and important in their own right, but they only scratch the surface of the set of possibilities for delivering video across the network.
This presentation will describe in detail a number of technologies that can be used to deliver live video signals for a variety of educational, scientific, commercial and entertainment purposes. Techniques for adapting uncompressed high definition, standard definition, and compressed video formats will be covered, including the latest SMPTE standards including 2022. Different forms of compression will be discussed, including JPEG 2000, MPEG, and H.264. Techniques that can be used for controlling a wide-area video network will be discussed, along with the architectures and topologies that can be successfully deployed.
Session attendees will come away with an understanding of the current state of the art in transporting broadcast-quality or better video across IP networks, and gain a working knowledge of the key requirements for managing a successful video transport installation.
