A good explanation of the rationale and the pathway to IP broadcast, here.
There’s still time to sign up for tomorrow’s webinar on “How PEGs can Broadcast in HD – Today“. We’ll walk you through the design of a system that lets you broadcast your channel in HD over the Internet – even if your cable or telco carrier isn’t yet ready to accept an HD channel. Don’t miss out! Sign up here. The webinar will be held Wednesday, Feb 6, at 2pm ET.

The National Science Foundation is making a TON of great videos available to PEGs for free through the Community Media Distribution Network (CMDN). At acm.telvue.com, go to content>advanced search>owner=nsf. If you don’t have a cmdn account, register at http://cmdn.tv/. It’s free.
CMDN is maintained by TelVue as a service to the Alliance for Community Media, a coalition of access stations across the country.
TelVue is proud to be powering PhillyCam, Philadelphia’s very first public access station, which celebrates it’s Grand Opening tomorrow. The new PhillyCam headquarters boasts digital video editing, studio and classroom space, and a suite of TelVue’s digital broadcasting technologies.
“TelVue has been great to work with”, says Debbie Rudman, PhillyCam’s Programming Director. We’re luck that we’re coming online in the digital era, and can start off with everything digital. The interface enables us to have good control over sending out programs over multiple platforms.”
It is a dream that took more than twenty years to come to fruition. After years of negotiation and community support, PhillyCam finally went on the air in late 2009, from a temporary facility. It has since raised enough funds to renovate a permanent home at 699 Ranstead Street, just one block West of Independence Hall.
“The TelVue servers give PhillyCam a head start as a ‘born-digital’ PEG facility”, explains Denise Rolfe, TelVue’s Manager of Hosted Broadcasting Sales. “This gives the station great flexibility to cablecast digitally, stream online, offer videos-on-demand, and even program remotely.”
PhillyCam is hosting an open house Wednesday, Feb. 8, at 6pm, at their new headquarters, and will air a live broadcast from the new studio starting at 7pm. PhillyCam is on Comcast 66/966 & Verizon 29/30. If you’re not in the Philly area, you’ll be able to watch it at phillycam.org.
