NJVid - A New Jersey Statewide Video Portal Based on Fedora
Time 04/23/08 03:00PM-04:00PM
NJVid is an IMLS grant-funded project that will provide a statewide digital video portal to meet the wide ranging needs of educators, students, and lifelong learners in New Jersey. NJVid is a collaboration among three consortia: New Jersey's Virtual Academic Library Environment (VALE), NJEDge - New Jersey's State Research and Education Network, and New Jersey Digital Highway (NJDH) (www.njdigitalhighway.org) - the statewide digital cultural heritage portal. An academic video-on-demand portal for the state of New Jersey will support diversity of information and cultural heritage institutions of which there are over 600 including libraries, archives, historical societies, and museums.
Video collections to serve New Jersey citizens are the core of NJVid. Collections will focus in three areas: Video Commons will be publicly available including history, lectures from notables, and video documenting research and scientific advances. Commercial videos will be available through educational consortia and accessible based on the rights of participating institutions. In a special application, lectures on demand will be supported by enabling faculty to create virtual clips that can be used for the duration of a course.
This track session will focus on the storage architecture, networking, authentication, and related services required to make NJVid a reality.
