Campus-centric NREN Services, or: The Evolution of SWITCHcast

New services are often based on a technologically driven approach; it
was not much different with SWITCHcast, our lecture recording system.
State of the art technologies were used to build a system that allows a
user to record, cut and publish his lectures in a simple way, whereas a
lecture not only consists of a video-stream of the lecturer, but also
includes a second stream with their slides.

This presentation elaborates how we in Switzerland have built a
community of multimedia experts and used their knowledge and experience
to create a service that is suited to their needs. Thus we were able to
benefit from each other.
