Feasibility Studies in IP Videoconferencing, Streaming, and Wireless Communication.
Two feasibility studies were undertaken to determine how to use video streaming with other technologies over IP. One involved wireless technology to stream video live from the 2001 AMIA Symposium in Washington, DC. The other involved simultaneously webcasting a multipoint videoconference to a viewing audience that could communicate with the conference panelist using chat. The results of these tests are reported along with recommendations for further experiments. The outcomes have implications for the use of broadband synchronous communication in distance learning.
