This activity includes the Videobroadcasting service and support of videoconferencing.
The Videobroadcasting service supports recording and streaming of scientific events.
The team is equipped with camcorders, tripods, video recorders, video and audio mixers, monitors, non-linear editing units, hardware codecs, etc., with state-of-the-art tools for broadcasting live or recorded events via Internet. It also has dedicated streaming video servers and a repository for the distribution of recordings via Web.
Video conferencing is accomplished mainly through management of a specially- equipped meeting room, which has been set up to maximize the potential use of the AccessGrid system for videoconferencing (http://www.accessgrid.org/). The same equipment can also be used to support traditional-type multimedia conferencing using SIP or H.323 technology, or group co-operation facilitated by use of the Marratech system (http://www.marratech.com).
