Proceedings of the UKERNA Networkshop, Aberdeen, UK, April 1998.

The paper gives an introduction and overview of the activities conducted under the PIPVIC (Piloting IP Videoconferencing) project. The partner sites – who represent a range of UK Higher Education Institutions - are using IP multicast conferencing tools to support a range of collaborative teaching, research and administrative activities over a period of 5 months. The aim of the project is to understand the potential issues involved in running a large-scale IP videoconferencing service, and to document working local set-up and support requirements for sites using such a service.
