videoconferencing and streaming initiatives
Europe both national research networks and institutes for higher
education are developing or running advanced videoconferencing
and audio- and videostreaming services. In order for these organisations
to share their experience and to promote cooperation amongst them,
TERENA (the Trans-European Research and Education Networking Association)
set up the taskforce TF-STREAM.
This presentation will outline TF-STREAM past and present activities,
among which piloting the use of pan-European video conferencing
and media streaming, and developing and disseminating best practice
guidelines. Furthermore, other ongoing initiatives both in Europe,
the USA (Internet2) and elsewhere will be outlined. As an example
some of SURFnet's videoconferencing and videostreaming projects
will be discussed.
