Video Streaming Technology for Education and Government
Presented by Rich Mavrogeanes, President and CEO, Discover Video
Thursday, December 5th at 10 AM

This session is focused on video streaming technology for educational and government organizations. Nowadays, video is an essential communications tool in government agencies, universities, and K-12 schools. Delivering live video is still a challenge for most organizations. This session will focus on video streaming technology, standards such as H.264/H.265, and applications (distance learning/event broadcasts, meeting distribution). Rich will discuss how to evaluate premises based solutions and cloud systems and how to integrate the two (hybrid streaming). The session will include real world case studies such the State Capital of Rhode Island and UMASS Medical College.

GV Expo 2013 is taking place on December 3rd-5th at Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. Register here.
