Web streaming is creating an audio/video broadcast for the purpose of viewing it online through a web browser. It is a way to convey information to a large audience in a one-directional format. This can be used to broadcast public meetings or trainings that may or may not be live and do not have a need for direct interaction or feedback from the audience as would a traditional video conference or web collaboration session. ITD currently offers a product from Discover Video called DEVOS as the web streaming solution.
DEVOS is a web streaming solution that is accessible from computers and mobile devices. It uses HTML 5 and Flash formats which can be access by many web-enabled devices supporting either of those formats.
DEVOS delivers live streams originating from DVME (Discover Video Multimedia Encoder) encoders which will need to be installed on the individual entity's computer. The DVME is a software application that is capable of combining video, audio, and what is displayed on the computer screen and delivers it as a single video stream that can be viewed on computers, tablets, and mobile devices.
