It's a system that's really intended to work on a local area network, which
means that if you plan on delivering content to off-campus or off-site
users, you're sorta sunk.

Hello,

Are any of you using VBRICK http://www.vbrick.com/ <http://www.vbrick.com/>
at your university? If so, what is your experience? The IT people here is
looking into using them for streaming videos and others but I am not
convinced that they will do what we need.

Please send me any comments.
Thanks,
Cindy

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.
