Hi Cindy

There was a survey that wend out on videolib a few months back re this.

Projection in a classroom has nothing to do with bandwidth, per
se. If your classrooms have suitably fast network connections (at
least 10mb, but preferably 100 or more) you should stream just fine.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
