  • NOTES Laurie and Doug feel this presentation should do more than present the facts. It should tell a story of the year’s successes and the goal of looking toward even greater successes in the future. They feel the idea of success should be threaded throughout the fabric of the talk. They suggest you begin with something along the lines of what is below. “ We’ve got a great story to tell this year. It has been a year of notable accomplishments. And all these accomplishments lay the groundwork for even greater future successes. Before we talk about our future, we need to take a look at where we’ve been and where we are today. To start, we’ll review ResearchChannel’s goals.”
  • NOTES Our new participants show the diversity of the consortium. We have participants from Australia, the Netherlands and Poland. The Library of Congress is the best library in the country. I'm sorry to announce that William Hydrick from Tulane wasn’t able to attend. We are so happy to have them as a new participant, and our thoughts go out to them during the tough year they have ahead.

  • NOTES ResearchChannel is now seen in 21 million homes, up from 19 million homes this time last year. AP: How can we show this better? Does April have an idea for a graphic to show? How does this compare with the overall number of TV households is U.S.?
  • LAURIE’S NOTES Given the wide variety of research topics we cover and the specific and in-depth nature of programs, we are ideally suited to the VOD platform. To quote Robert Ladd, Director of VOD for Charter Communications: ResearchChannel is “unique, great stuff.” Charter Communications will launch ResearchChannel VOD in all markets where VOD is offered, approximately 2 million subscribers. Additionally, VOD discussions are ongoing with Comcast Communications (9 million digital households) “Transport and Asset Management” agreements have been reached with TVN, one of the industry’s largest digital content aggregation, management, distribution and service companies. This agreement positions us well for 2006 VOD discussions with additional cable companies.
  • NOTES Vijay and Mangalam are working with the World Bank and Internet2 to create an Internet2-style application in India. They want ResearchChannel to be one of the premier applications. Point: There’s a lot of international interest in ResearchChannel.
  • NOTES The numbers tell the story: We have a large number of deeply engaged users, and that number is on the rise.
  • LAURENS’ NOTES Website Traffic (visits on researchchannel.org) Our visit numbers are about midline for web traffic in general. Large-scale commercial sites such as ESPN.com and ABCNews.com have daily visits above the 3,000,000 mark. Less-popular properties run at the 1,000 to 50,000 visit level and makes up the middle tier. The Seattle Times site is a good example with about 23,000 visits daily. At the bottom are smaller, niche sites (e.g. blogs) running between 1 to 1,000 visits. The Research Channel website is currently averaging 6,000 visits and 11,000 page views daily (excluding streams). These are solid numbers for our segment.  In fact, comparing apples to apples, we may chart toward the top for University/Research-based sites . RC Viewing Time The duration over the last year is 5 minutes on average. This is a strong number. The average view for web content in general below 1 minute. This number shows that we are doing a good job of retaining visitors on our site once they find us.
  • NOTES Streaming Content (plays of RC streaming content) We fare a little better in the streaming segment. The big players in streaming video are the cable news networks (CNN, MSNBC, etc.). MSNBC.com video streams average 650,000 plays daily. The RC average is 5,000 plays daily. This is a fine showing, even outside of our segment and I, again, assume we will place well when compared against similar formats and content.
  • Total time that programs were played increased from 190,000 ( 189,014) minutes per month in August 2003, to more than 650,000 ( 652,765) minutes in June 2005. ResearchChannel media has 15 times the industry average viewer retention rate for streaming media! (actual time is 20 seconds versus 5 minutes).
  • NOTES Read quote. This is just one of many letters of praise we have received for our programming. Our subscribers are enthusiastic and appreciative. They recognize how our programming differs from other programs on television.
  • The number of program offerings continues to grow, with programming hours and programs added each year both on the rise.

  • This slide sets the stage for the rest of the presentation, which will focus on what’s on the horizon in the coming year. To review where we’ve been and where we are currently, we have more participants than ever. We have the breadth and number of programs to appeal to a large audience and have a strong online VOD presence. We have important partnerships in place and exciting new partnerships in development. We are as strong as ever on the technology front. We are reaching more viewers than ever, and those viewers are engaged and appreciative. They “get” what we are doing. And our online usage is extremely strong. In short, we’ve never looked better. As an organization, we are very well-positioned for new success in the coming year. The time is ripe for taking advantage of these opportunities. Now we are going to look forward, a look at some exciting business opportunities, including Cable VOD, the Internet and our rebranding initiative. Throughout the meeting, you’ll hear more about these highlights.

  • Positions digitalwell so that it is not a prorpietary system. Usere can use a differnet admit interface and no particular Storage layer can be accessed in many different ways using middleware.
  • SRB BACKGROUND INFORMATION As Jim DeRoest says, “Think of it as a metadata Swiss army knife.” Developed by the San Diego Supercomputing Center, SRB is middleware that talks to an array of hierarchical storage systems and the applications that manage those systems. In short, SRB allows digital libraries to communicate by way of their metadata. A goal for DigitalWell is to share content information with other digital libraries and to accomplish this goal, SRB is being layered underneath DigitalWell. MIT's DSpace, Cornell's Fedora and the Library of Congress are adding SRB to their libraries so they can communicate with other digital libraries. Besides sharing content information, the capability to share data is also being explored. All sharing of content information and data would be authenticated and authorized. SRB facilitates what metadata to expose, whether that data can be viewed, copied or modified, and if the content itself can be viewed, copied or modified. One of the first steps in determining how SRB will function with DigitalWell came in Sardinia. ResearchChannel and nine other Worldwide Universities Network sites showed that these sites could see each other's collections, that metadata could be copied based on permissions, and that content could be moved back and forth between sites. The ability for these libraries to communicate using SRB will make the search arena much larger. SRB also promises to be a major tool to enable participants to better communicate with each other.

  • BACKGROUND NOTES Global n-Way Interactive HD Over IP Video Demonstration: iGrid, San Diego, Sept. 28–29, 2005 Until now, videoconferencing has been a poor substitute for meeting in person with colleagues. Low-quality video coupled with slow response times make videoconferencing inferior to real-life communication. Having an effective tool for communicating with colleagues from around the globe is vital. This ResearchChannel demonstration will bring the feeling of real-life, in-person interactions to videoconferencing. This is a major step toward raising videoconferencing to the same level as conversing with colleagues who are in the same room. In this videoconferencing demonstration, participants from around the world will be able to communicate in real time by way of high-resolution, high-definition video and with very low latency. Each site will communicate with the other sites in a very high-quality videoconference environment. In some cases, this communication will be two-way, with completely uncompressed HDTV. This is the first multicast of 1.5Gb/s high-definition video and the first demonstration of a multipoint videoconference using uncompressed HD. Each remote site will transmit uncompressed HD video and audio through Internet Protocol to receivers at the iGrid venue. Each received stream will then be tiled on a single HD stream that will be multicast to all remote sites. Also, an image of the current speaker will be multicast to all the other sites as a single uncompressed HD stream. iGrid participants will see a full-resolution image of the current speaker in real time as well as a tiled display of all videoconference participants. The same will be seen at all other participating sites. The University of Washington, in conjunction with the Pacific Northwest Gigapop, ResearchChannel and AARNet, led the development of this system. Other partners include CALit2, UCSD, SURFNet, University of Wisconsin-Madison, WIDE and APAC.
