Live Video Streaming - Originating


MOREnet's Live Video Streaming service enables members to send Universal encoded streams to servers.  This eliminates the need for member organizations to increase their bandwidth in order to serve streaming video.

Features

  • The service is available on a first come, first served basis.
  • Archiving will need to be done on site. This is not provided with the service at this time.
  • MOREnet will provide bandwidth utilization statistics about each streaming video session to the event coordinator.
  • Streaming service is available during video support hours.

System Requirements

To Originate the Stream

Eligibility

All MOREnet members with equipment and software that meet the minimum required specifications for originating a stream can request retransmission of their stream through MOREnet's Live Video Streaming service.

Requesting the Service

The originating site must submit a Live Video Streaming Request Form for each streaming session at least 10 business days before the event.

MOREnet members with full membership are eligible for the Entry Level Service which includes 100 GB of live streaming per year. Additional live streaming (beyond 100 GB of entry level service) is $80/100 GB. All MOREnet members are eligible to purchase the Entry Level Service.

Support

MOREnet will set up the event based on information submitted in the Live Video Streaming Request Form. The originating site is responsible for providing technical support for player connections. MOREnet provides live streaming support on the same basis as for its videoconferencing service. See Contact Video Support for contact information and hours of support. 

Live Video Streaming - Originating Terms and Conditions

  • All services are subject to MOREnet Service Policies.
  • Content. Members are responsible for producing and encoding their own events. The originating site can stream either live or taped video.
  • Intellectual Property Rights. Media, such as audio, video and still images, are subject to intellectual property rights and copyright laws just as text materials are. The originating site is responsible for ensuring that notice for copyright or other intellectual property rights are properly displayed.
  • Network Technician. The originating site must have a network technician available during the session.
  • Testing. Testing must be completed two business days prior to the event.
  • Cancellation. If the originating site must cancel a requested session, it should do so at least two business days prior to the event.
  • Publicity. The originating site is responsible for any required public notice, advertising, establishing a webpage regarding the event or related items such as post-session evaluation.
  • Conditional access.  If restricted access is required, this is the responsibility of the requestor.  MOREnet will provide a direct link to our server for members to embed in a registration page, so the link remains hidden.  Communication with the requesting organization during the event is critical in the event that the server link must be changed.  This happens very rarely but must be considered.
