LTG Research projects

14. MediaHub

MediaHub Logo

This project aims to overhaul the University's digital media production infrastructure and expand it to include all three main content producing groups: Public Affairs Directorate (PAD), Media Production Unit (MPU), and the Learning Technologies Group (LTG). The project is split into two phases. Phase one will provision the first two key pieces of shared infrastructure: a video cataloguing system and a transcode engine. An important component of the project will be to observe the workflows in use by all three content producing units and to evaluate the best solution for their combined storage needs.

The second phase, which will be the subject of a separate bid, will implement a scalable, shared infrastructure based on the recommendations of the evaluation.

  • Duration: October 2011- April 2012
  • Funded by the University of Oxford Student Systems Programme Board
