Media Services at Georgia Tech: Strategies and Lessons Learned

Tuesday, June 03 | 10:30AM–11:15AM | City Terrace 4 (Third Floor)
Session Type: Professional Development
Georgia Tech has offered a centralized video streaming service for over a decade. Initially supported as a traditional shared hosting service with users maintaining their own directories of content, the dramatic growth in volume in recent years has required a different approach. We are currently developing Open Media Services, an open source web service, which will provide multimedia storage, management, conversion, and streaming to various systems on campus (course management, classroom capture, iTunesU, podcasting, institution repositories, and more). The session will cover goals, strategies, and lessons learned related to this project and streaming media architectures in general.
