University Installs Campuswide Video-on-Demand

Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore is
installing a broadband video on demand application
that will enable 22,000 NTU staff and students to view
video clips from the university's Media Library at any

campus location. Using the university Internet portal
students and staff can browse lists of pre-defined
categories or conduct a search of available
titles. If a requested selection has not been
pre-digitized, a message is sent to a librarian, who
will encode the video into MPEG-1 in real-time and
stream it in unicast mode over the university's local
area network to a student at a particular campus PC.
NTU used encoding and streaming platforms, MPEG
MovieMaker and MGW 2000, from Israel-based Optibase,
Ltd., a developer broadband streaming platforms.

just thought it was of interest....
