This session will explore the World Campus approach to streaming video delivery on mobile device platforms such as iOS and Android. As more and more content is delivered to mobile devices, we need to develop strategies that ensure we are delivering a high quality product from a robust production environment. A brief presentation will take a look at the streaming environment we have developed based on the Flash Media Server platform including some insight into some of the choices we have made in its implementation and the processes we have developed to deliver high quality video to a range of devices, including mobile. The presentation will feature an overview of our development and delivery environment as well as our reasoning behind our mobile strategy. A demonstration of our encoding and delivery process will follow, featuring techniques that the audience can take away and implement immediately. We will wrap up with an audience discussion about the future of mobile streaming video in higher education and potential opportunities for collaboration and expertise sharing around the university.
