Our paper on
Piloting IP Multicast Conferencing over SuperJANET: The PIPVIC Project
was presented at the UKERNA Networksho in Aberdeen.
The paper gives an introduction and overview of the activities
conducted under the PIPVIC (Piloting IP Videoconferencing) project.
The partner sites, University College London, the University of Exeter
and the University of Wales at Aberystwyth, are using IP multicast
conferencing tools, including RAT, 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.
