BC ELN is pleased to offer consortial licensing for video hosting and streaming accounts on the IRIS Education platform.
IRIS powers the shared collection of streaming videos formerly managed by AEMAC, which libraries have been using since 2009. This same platform is now available to host and stream libraries' own video assets.
IRIS has a powerful network and extensive storage capabilities. Libraries will have access to unlimited hosting and bandwidth, within reason [vendor's words].
The license includes:
- A video streaming platform
- Hosting for any video content owned or licensed by the library
- The ability to add content at any time
- The ability to specify IP ranges that may or may not access particular content
BC ELN will coordinate the licence with IRIS and handle invoicing, similar to research database licenses. Individual institutions are responsible for licensing and uploading content.
