Survey of Compressed Video Applications: Higher Education, K-12, and the Private Sector, 1993.
Cochenour, John; And Others
This paper presents the results of three surveys about live, two-way interactive video (compressed video) and discusses some possible trends in its use, applications, and technological development. Surveys are an Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT) survey that has not been completed; one from the "International Video Teleconferencing Source Book," which lists over 900 users in the United States; and the National Association of State Telecommunications Directors survey of 10 western states. There is a broad trend toward the use of lower transmission rates among educational institutions. The current edition of the "Source Book" states that 71% of educational institutions use transmission rates of 384 Kbps or lower. There is a general increase in the use of VideoTelecom equipment. Noneducational users also tend to use lower transmission rates, confirming the overall trend toward lower bandwidth technology. Nine figures illustrate the survey findings. (Contains 3 references.)
