Streaming Video in Academic Libraries: Preliminary Results From a National Survey

In spring 2013, the presenters developed a survey on academic library streaming video and distributed it broadly through various discussion and mailing lists.

This is the first large-scale and most comprehensive effort to date to collect data on streaming video funding, licensing, acquisition, and hosting in academic libraries. Its results will provide benchmark data for future explorations of this rapidly expanding approach to video in academic libraries.

Streaming video is becoming a common occurrence on many campuses today. Its fast growth is due in part to the steady growth of online classes and programs. Technology has also played a role in this growth as alternatives for ingesting and accessing content have expanded. Multiple options are now available including in-house approaches, cloud storage, and third party vendors.

This survey collected data on how academic institutions address the day-to-day operations related to streaming video as well as perceived directions for future action.

Survey questions addressed selection and acquisition of video in both hard copy and streaming formats, funding for acquisitions, current and planned hosting interfaces, cataloging and access, and current practice and policy on digitization of hard copy titles for streaming. This session reviews the instrument used, and provides a preliminary look at some of the key data collected.

The Labriola Center and the Role of ASU Libraries in The Simon Ortiz and Labriola Center Lecture on Indigenous Land, Culture, and Community

Description

The Simon Ortiz and Labriola Center Lecture on Indigenous Land, Culture, and Community addresses topics and issues across disciplines in the arts, humanities, sciences, and politics. Underscoring Indigenous American experiences

The Simon Ortiz and Labriola Center Lecture on Indigenous Land, Culture, and Community addresses topics and issues across disciplines in the arts, humanities, sciences, and politics. Underscoring Indigenous American experiences and perspectives, this Series seeks to create and celebrate knowledge that evolves from an Indigenous worldview that is inclusive and that is applicable to all walks of life.” Professor Simon Ortiz discussed the overall nature of the Series, especially emphasizing the global nature of Indigenous concerns. Joyce Martin and Matthew Harp elaborated on the contributions of the Labriola National American Indian Data Center and ASU Libraries to the Series.

The Labriola Center hosts an informal event in Hayden Library which facilitates close interaction between the featured speaker and audience members. The ASU Libraries records the evening lectures which take place at the Heard Museum and presents both an audio podcast and streaming video of each lecture on the ASU Library Channel webpage. This lecture series provides not only a chance for community discussion at the events themselves, but through the innovative use of technology the ASU Libraries enables additional forums for discussion in blogs and web pages which choose to link to the streaming videos.

Streaming video has been an option for academic libraries for nearly a decade. What is the state of streaming video in academic libraries today? How are these libraries acquiring streaming videos? Who makes acquisition decisions? How much staff time does supporting streaming video require?

Flexi-WVSNP-DASH: a wireless video sensor network platform for the Internet of Things

Video capture, storage, and distribution in wireless video sensor networks

(WVSNs) critically depends on the resources of the nodes forming the sensor

networks. In the era of big data, Internet of Things (IoT), and distributed

demand and solutions, there is a need for multi-dimensional data to be part of

the Sensor Network data that is easily accessible and consumable by humanity as

well as machinery. Images and video are expected to become as ubiquitous as is

the scalar data in traditional sensor networks. The inception of video-streaming

over the Internet, heralded a relentless research for effective ways of

distributing video in a scalable and cost effective way. There has been novel

implementation attempts across several network layers. Due to the inherent

complications of backward compatibility and need for standardization across

network layers, there has been a refocused attention to address most of the

video distribution over the application layer. As a result, a few video

streaming solutions over the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) have been

proposed. Most notable are Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) and the Motion

Picture Experts Groups Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (MPEG-DASH). These

frameworks, do not address the typical and future WVSN use cases. A highly

flexible Wireless Video Sensor Network Platform and compatible DASH (WVSNP-DASH)

are introduced. The platform's goal is to usher video as a data element that

can be integrated into traditional and non-Internet networks. A low cost,

scalable node is built from the ground up to be fully compatible with the

Internet of Things Machine to Machine (M2M) concept, as well as the ability to

be easily re-targeted to new applications in a short time. Flexi-WVSNP design

includes a multi-radio node, a middle-ware for sensor operation and

communication, a cross platform client facing data retriever/player framework,

scalable security as well as a cohesive but decoupled hardware and software

design.

Resource allocation for video streaming in multi-user wireless networks

Survey indicates a rise of 81% in mobile data usage in the year 2013. A fair share of this total data demand can be attributed to video streaming. The encoding structure of videos, introduces nuances that can be utilized to ensure a fair and optimal means of streaming the video data. This dissertation proposes a novel user and packet scheduling algorithm that guarantees a fair allocation of resources. MS-SSIM index

is used to calculate the mean opinion score (DMOS) to evaluate the quality of the received video. Simulations indicate that the proposed algorithm outperforms existing algorithms in the literature.
