MSNBC Webcast available to University users through June 4
Posted March 19, 2002; 05:44 p.m.
As a pilot program, the Office of Information Technology is offering live streaming Webcasts from MSNBC, the cable television news channel, to users on the princeton.edu campus network through June 4.
This service is offered in response to requests following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks to provide campus Web access to live news coverage. The pilot program is designed to provide streaming video over the Web to the University's faculty, staff and students who do not have access to TigerVideo cable or other media sources during the day.
To view the Webcast, visit the WebMedia site . Next to the "MSNBC Live 24 Hours" logo are options to click on the 56k or 300k video streams. The options to the right of the bright blue icon are for RealVideo player. The options to the right of the Windows icon are for WindowsMedia player. Users will be asked to log in using their Princeton NetID and NT password.
A survey has been posted on the WebMedia site to determine whether the community will show enough interest in the service to continue it after the pilot ends.
