Level: Fundamental, Lecture
Excerpt: VHS tapes are a dead technology. DVDs are dying a rapid death. But your teachers still need access to this media in their classrooms. Learn how can you future-proof your school with a digital streaming solution.
Description: Five years ago, I presented on our early efforts to digitize all our school’s VHS tapes and DVDs and put them in digital asset management system (Plex). Much has changed since we deployed in 2014. Come to this session to see how we systematically digitize our content, manage our libraries, maintain copyright compliance, and monitor playback on the AppleTVs in each classroom.
