University Intercommunication. The Nine Universities Research Project. Final Report.
Jackson, Brian, Ed.
Many universities have already begun to explore the use of closed-circuit television (CCTV) for internal purposes. Provided that the equipment installed is of adequate quality and technically compatible with that of other universities, CCTV, supplemented by arrangements for recording on magnetic tape or on film, can provide a basis for inter-university communications as well. This report explores the present state of closed circuit television and videotape recording facilities at various universities in Great Britain. It discusses various means for developing a CCTV network and estimates the probable costs involved. It discusses the advantages to be gained by such a system and concludes with recommendations and proposals for its development. Appendices contain technical and budgetary information, a summary of American experiences in intercommunication, and American research findings on the impact of television teaching. A bibliography is also supplied. (JY)
