The SURA/ViDe Conference brings together every year approximately 200 educators, technologists, librarians, archivists and policymakers to discuss a broad range of issues relating to the development and deployment of video-over-IP in higher education. While the conference program is still being finalized, topics covered will include collection development and digital rights management, 3D data collaboration, the deployment of campuswide services, medical and educational applications, MPEG4, SIP, accessibility for people with disabilities, and the delivery of uncompressed video and HDTV over IP. Our focus will be on applications being developed and in production at colleges and universities, but attendees will also receive a good overview of trends in standards development and technological innovation. As in past conferences, we expect to have speakers from Europe, Asia and Latin America as well as from across the United States and Canada, presenting in person or remotely via videoconference. We are also planning two workshops: one on metadata creation for moving image collections, and one on the delivery of high quality video over IP. And together with Internet2, we will be sponsoring an I2 Commons Training for site coordinators supporting H323 videoconferencing.
