Video Initiatives on the Data Network

Time 02/02/09 10:50AM-11:10AM

Session Abstract

NU has been providing entertainment television to its campus since 2002 using IP multicast. That service has grown from 20 to 37 channels, 2 of which are shared globally with the Internet2 community.

In recent years, we have expanded the service to include student-generated content on a dedicated channel, video on demand for educational content in partnership with the NU Library, and video delivery via a set top box device from the system vendor.

Moving forward this year, we plan to implement a shared lineup of channels with partner institutions in the area in an effort to spread costs and deliver a richer set of content to all of our users.

In addition, we are rolling out a brand-new DirecTV-based service that delivers standard- and high-definition DirecTV content via our campus multicast network with the use of more familiar consumer set top box and DVR equipment.
