Emory Cable Television is a campus-wide television network for Emory faculty, staff, and students. Programming includes a variety of news, entertainment and sports, along with 18 foreign language channels. Digital and high-definition channels are also part of the programming package.

And three channels have a specific campus focus:

  • Edu.net -- broadcasts of satellite shows and live events
  • ETV: Channel 53 -- original student productions
  • WMRE -- the Emory student radio station with live feeds from its studio

Emory University, Emory Healthcare and Oxford College maintain separate TV programming services, with unique channel line-ups. Emory Healthcare and the Oxford campus are served by area cable providers.

 

Audio and Video Streaming services are used for live broadcasts and on-demand content that can be archived. Streaming services can be used to create digital media for online courses, for department training sessions and to document and promote other campus events. This service is flexible and can be customized for the specific needs of any type of project.

Content can be deployed on Emory’s network and then to the internet for worldwide viewing. Emory’s audio and visual streaming services utilize the Wowza Streaming Engine.

Specialized services such as Live streaming (or webcasting) require advance planning, technical coordination, advertising and other resources in order to deliver a successful event.  Webcasting is used to broadcast Emory's Commencement.

 

Emory Class Capture through Echo 360

Echo360 is a classroom and personal lecture capture and video delivery system with user-friendly tools for recording, transcoding and publishing.  Students can then watch class sessions repeatedly 24/7 through an online archive.

Faculty and staff instructors can use the software in the classroom, the office or at home. Many Emory schools have installed automated capture systems in select classrooms and can provide the technology to faculty teaching in remote locations.

Echo 360 is an effective way for instructors to build libraries of material for access not only by students but also by the general academic community.
