Brandeis Media Delivery Project

Over the last few years, the Brandeis community has steadily increased its use of online video and audio across all facets of university life. To better support this growing demand, Brandeis Library & Technology Services (LTS) is investigating products in order to recommend an improved system for providing online, streamed audio and video.

Development of requirements (November 2011-January 2012, complete)
These findings will be used to produce a clear set of community requirements for the creation, publishing, and consumption of digital media.

Evaluation of possible digital media solutions (Spring 2012, complete)
Commercially available products that address community requirements will be investigated and tested during the Spring 2012 semester. Community involvement will be invited in this process.

Recommendations (Summer 2012)
LTS will recommend one or more new digital media solutions and revisions to LTS services that together address community requirements.

Community feedback (Ongoing throughout 2012)
LTS will seek ongoing community feedback on these findings, requirements, and recommendations.

Product Pilot (Fall 2012)
LTS will conduct a pilot of Ensemble.

Implementation (Projected during FY14)

Community Involvement

LTS will conduct a semester-long pilot of Ensemble. Our goal is to have a handful of classes and departments use it during Fall 2012 to help us determine if Ensemble meets the Brandeis community's needs. If you are interested in participating in the pilot, please contact Adam Lipkin.

Two community forums were held in March 2012. Keep an eye on this page for other opportunities to participate!
