 Hi all,

The Berkeley folks will be coming down to give a talk about the OpenCast
project Feb 6th from 1:00-2:30 (most likely in Wallenberg but will get back
to you once the location is confirmed).

Please come over if you're interested in podcasting/webcasting solutions.



*What is the OpenCast Community?*

A community centered around open, scalable, and sustainable podcast/webcast
solutions and best practices for higher education.

*What is the OpenCast Project?*

UC Berkeley is developing a podcast capture, post-processing, and
distribution system that will integrate current technological advancements
such as Apple's Podcast Producer with existing academic community source
frameworks such as Sakai to replace its antiquated system.

The initial release of the OpenCast system is projected for Fall 2008 and
will satisfy our campus' local needs.  This system will not be a turn key
solution since many institutions have different organizational, policy, and
business requirements, and demand a certain level of cost for adoption.
Nevertheless. UC Berkeley has taken steps to develop a flexible object model
that will allow other schools to potentially participate in a broader
community source initiative.   Because other institutions use CLE solutions
outside of Sakai, the OpenCast system will run standalone as well as within
the Sakai environment, and is designed to abstract Podcast Producer as a
"Media Processing and Capture Engine" to allow for other alternatives.
