[8:00 AM] Vancouver Film School Shows Off Work With New QuickTIme Streaming Site
David Gratton of the Vancouver Film School - New Media, has informed us of a new streaming QuickTime/multimedia site available to the public, VFS Live. Using QuickTime's streaming technology to demonstrate high quality graphic design work would not have been imaginable a few short years ago. According to Mr. Gratton:
We use Quicktime Streaming with OS X server. At the moment we are streaming for cable modems or higher. The reason for the high bandwidth target is we are showing student work (videos and 3D animations) which lose their presentation quality at lower bit rates. In the future we will be streaming live shows which do not require such high bandwidths.
Our music site is just starting to grow and features the Qdesign Codec with a few MP3s. We find Qdesign to be higher quality than MP3 and therefore more of them are available.
The first live show is tonight at 6:00 PM CST. You can find more information at the VFS Live web site.
