Ateneo Uses Video-Streaming Technology
Mar 31, 2008 — For the last four years, Mozcom has been providing video streaming services (sometimes referred to as webcasting) to private companies, as well as, educational institutions to make their events available for viewing to anyone in the world.
Through this technology, the 2008 graduation ceremonies of the Ateneo Grade School, High School, and Loyola Schools, were once again streamed live on the Internet. This allowed friends and relatives who cannot make it to the event physically, to still be part of this special occasion. They simply need to log on to http://stream.mozcom.com/ateneo to view the event as it happens.
The video-streaming service utilizes Microsoft Windows Media technology. People who wish to watch the event from any Internet-connected PC only need to open their web browser or Windows Media Player to receive live video and audio feed. This service is provided through the joint effort of the Ateneo Campus Network Group and Mozcom, the University’s service provider.
Ateneo will also use this same technology to stream the talk of Nobel Laureate for Chemistry Aaron J. Ciechanover, which it will host on April 3, 2008 at the Loyola Heights campus in Quezon City.
