Video Streaming of Lectures via the Internet: An Experience.
McCrohon, Mark; Lo, Victor; Dang, Jim; Johnston, Carol
This paper reports on an investigation into methods of efficiently introducing video streaming into subjects in the economics and commerce faculty at the University of Melbourne (Australia). Several software options were investigated before finally settling on RealSystems. The paper provides a brief review of the background of the project followed by a general overview of video streaming that covers creating and delivering streaming videos via the Internet and using RealSystems products (RealProducer Plus, RealServer Basic, and RealPlayer 8 Basic) for video streaming. The challenges identified in effective video streaming (i.e., Internet connection bandwidth and clarity of displayed images) are outlined together with a discussion of possible solutions. The paper concludes with a summary of key indications from an investigation of this mode of subject delivery. (Contains 14 references.) (Author/MES)
