Streaming Media Services


SHOT offers a robust suite of tools to support member institutions use of streaming media.  For assistance regarding these tools, contact the SHOT Office at shotTRChelpdesk@smsu.edu or 507.537.6984. Tools available include the following:

Streaming Media Server

SHOT offers its member institutions to a streaming Server that can be used for streaming live or recorded content.  The server supports several streaming media formats including Windows Media, Quick Time, Real Media, and Flash. 

Tandberg Content Server

The Tandberg content server has the ability to record meetings and classes with the ITV equipment.  The Content Server can even support live event streaming to the desktop.  Use of ITV equipment supports high quality video.  The Content Server allows recordings in 4 formats--Windows Media, Quick Time, Flash, and Real Media.  Content can be slightly altered allowing the front and the back of the video clip to be cropped.  It also allows for downloadable options for some mobile devices including iPods and the Zune.  The Content Server also has the ability to capture voice and various video inputs from devices like smartboards, DVD players and Document cameras.

Content recorded on with the Content Server can be uploaded for viewing on either the SHOT streaming server or a member institution managed streaming server.

NOTE: There will be a 2-year limit on archived information.
