Stream UK platforms drives IET.tv

Press release from: StreamUK

Stream UK today announced its work with London based IET (Institute of Engineering and Technology) – providing advanced webcasting production, software and management systems in order to streamline the process of content creation and distribution for IET.tv (http://tv.theiet.org).

IET is one of the world's leading professional societies for the engineering and technology community, and IET.tv is a broadband television service which connects you to lectures, seminars, conferences and news webcasts. The IET provides webcasting services to hundreds of leading global companies and brands

For the webcast offering, the key challenge was to offer brandable and interactive webcast interfaces that can be delivered across a world-class network. Stability of delivery is vital, as is the ability to provide the service at very short notice. High quality media and a seamless synchronisation with presentations must be delivered every time. The solution was Stream Connect, Stream UK’s webcasting administration tool. Webcasts are now being delivered (both live and on demand) with Stream Connect, benefitting from the tool’s interactive options, automatic archiving, and reliable delivery platform. This allows the IET to provide a corporate space to deliver presentations, product launches and demonstrations and similarly provide academic institutions a space to stream conferences and lectures.

Additionally, the IET had a huge archive of media content which needed to be standardised to allow rapid categorisation and distribution on IET.tv. To meet this challenge, Stream UK have migrated the back catalogue of content onto the Stream UK Crowdsourcer platform (used by the BBC) to drive IET.tv’s channel-based site structure. By combining automated transcoding with intuitive moderation and distribution tools, the use of Stream Crowdsourcer within this solution demonstrates how the platform can be used retrospectively with existing media as well as providing advanced content management for the future.

With the current IET.tv site, web users can now:-
• Access over 2,000 multimedia presentations on demand
• Watch the speakers with synchronised slide presentations
• Search by slide, fast-forward, rewind and pause presentations
• Interact in real-time with presenters and other remote, online viewers via the Q&A chat facility for live webcasts
• Email presentations to friends or colleagues to view

To see IET.tv’s range of content, and their use of Stream Connect and Crowdsourcer, visit http://tv.theiet.org now.
