11 oktober 2014 SURFcontact HD videoconferencing service developed by SURFnet
Agenda -Functionality of the HDVC-service (high-level) -Set-up of the service -Wealth of clients -Business-case -Functionality (practical issues) -Adoption of HD-videoconference SURFnet, grensverleggend netwerk voor hoger onderwijs en onderzoek1
HD videoconferencing service Functionality -Group videoconferencing -Live streaming and recording -Videoconferencing through firewall -Session booking system -Monitoring & service reporting Service -Management -Operations -Support -Further development Standards -Transport = IP -Protocol = H.323/SIP/H.460 -Quality = HD (720/1080p) -Numberplan = GDS/E.164
The heart of the service 40 ports HD MCU

-HD VC Infrastructure ready for service -Institutions are transferred from current SD- service -First live tests conducted with users -January: -2nd line support -External service description, manual etc. -Booking system -February: -Pre-production -As of 1 March: fully operational service Current state of the service
HD MCU in action!
-Customer driven: service developed on request of UMC’s (academic hospitals) -Five UMC’s have committed for a 3-year period at 25 kEuro/year -UMC’s cooperate with IKC’s (integral cancer centers with regional function) -Three IKC’s have committed for a pilot period of 18 months Business case
Guest institutions Institutions Service supplier SURFnetUMCNUMCUMeander Sint Antonius IKAAVL Institutions and guest institutions
Functionality provided Institutions receive: Permanent rooms on MCU (10) Ad-hoc rooms on MCU (unlimited) Recording of sessions (unlimited) Streaming of sessions (unlimited) Second line support Monthly reporting Guest institutions receive: No permanent rooms on MCU No ad-hoc rooms on MCU No recording of sessions No streaming of sessions Second line support No monthly reporting
Adoption of HD VC Project with following rules Well defined project proposal including management support Maximum contribution of 15 kEuro per institution Contribution based on matching Implementation ultimately 1 August 2009 End-points support H.323 and/or SIP and 720p / 1080p HD
Stimulating adoption of HD VC by means of a contest Results: 25 compliant project proposals incl. 9 universities, 6 polytechnics & 4 academic hospitals) Project proves that local HDVC sets have become affordable All proposals will receive maximum contribution Significant take-up of HDVC in higher education in 2009 Technical guidelines results in standardization (interoperability) Adoption of HDVC expected to increase demand of HDMCU Increased demand of HDMCU results in lower tariffs for HDVC-service Lower tariffs results in increased adoption of HDVC (‘chicken & egg’)
