4 Objectives and Requirements 4  Provide a public video and audio broadcast solution to the Board of Trustees at the Dumke Auditorium through streaming media. – Requirements: AB1723: Legislation requiring streaming and on-demand storage will become effective 2013/01/ months on-demand storage and playback concurrent users. ADA compliance with captioning. Streaming could be used for other events. High quality video and audio. CSU BOT Streaming Media Project

5 Existing Issues and Fact Finding April 2013Board of Trustees Meeting Streaming Success! 5  CSU CO streaming systems were obsolete  Dumke Auditorium AV system and cameras were malfunctional  Need to find CSUs partners or vendors –Northern and Southern California campuses –CATS / DAT groups –Internet  Need projected connections and viewers Situation

6 User Connections and Conversion Rate 6  Connections November BOT 9/18- 9/19: CSU CO Main web site: ~5000 hits Board of Trustee’s web site: ~2000 hits Board of trustee’s stream page: ~200 hits Board of trustees streams: – ~180 (peak) – ~40 (constant)  Conversion Rate from site visits to stream: 3% from CSU main website 9% from BOT website User Connections and Conversion Rate

7 7  The recommended solution is a hybrid with CSU Pomona providing the primary method of streaming (live video, audio, and captioning) and CSU using a vendor (LiveStream) for backup service. Purchase equipment : –Fixed costs include a redundancy for failover equipment –Equipment can be used for CSU or vendor solutions Host with CSU Pomona as a pilot Expectations: –Maximum limit on video stream to 1,900 connections Vendor Failsafe: –Ready at warm state for provide overflow for over 1900 video connections or failover. Recommendation

9 9  CSU Pomona + Vendor Advantages: – CSU Pomona (Primary) ADA compliant solution Highly technical staff and support Robust backend equipment to support 2,000+ user connections CSU collaboration Affordable – Livestream / Ustream (Secondary) Multi Platform audience –iOS (Apple, iPAD, iPhone, iPod) –Android –Windows PC –Custom web page or embedded video –Social media embedding Robust backend infrastructure to support 10,000 + user connections. Streaming: Advantages

10  CSU Hybrid (CSU Pomona w/ vendor failsafe) : – Uses CSU-Hosted solution as primary and uses Vendor hosted as backup (or overflow) solution, risk of scheduling conflict with campus events. – Time to transition to vendor-sourced stream will take coordination with vendor, BOT web and media teams.  CSU Hosted (Pomona): – Scheduling conflicts with live streaming and caption encoders. – Windows Media Silver light client may need a PC / MAC for play back. – Delay time of about seconds from live broadcast. – CLA building retrofit / DataCenter closure in future 3+ years – no current impact 10 Streaming Solutions: Risks

11 11  Vendor Hosted (SAAS - Livestream): – Vendor is located in New York with telephone and support only during East coast office hours. – Event coverage requires an extra cost. – Integrated captioning and on-demand syncing is a separate cost. – Costs include hosting of on-demand content and captioning.  Vendor Hosted (SAAS – 100,000 view hours): In addition to notes above: – Estimated support of 10,000-20,000+ users. – No Unlimited Usage plans. – Overages will be charged by additional viewer hours. Streaming Solutions: Risks(continued)

12 12  Cloud Hosted (IAAS – AT&T): – High cost and funding – Captioning not integrated – On-demand captioning - external 2 day turn around with extra cost – Cost increase on burst traffic or additional CPU requirements – Authentication integration – New operating process to configure infrastructure Streaming Solutions: Risks (continued)
