Films on Demand

What is Films On Demand?

Films on Demand is a collection of outstanding educational videos that can enhance your understanding of the course you are taking.  The ability to view digital video in real time provides instant access to your entire video collection from any computer with a high-speed Internet connection. There's no need to track down borrowed or misplaced VHS tapes or DVDs. You can use On Demand to search for specific video segments, organize videos into folders, and create personal playlists for others to view.

Streaming technology allows you to access high-quality video content via the Internet. Instead of downloading an entire video file before viewing it, streaming allows you to begin viewing the video immediately while the rest of the program downloads in the background. Using a computer with a high-speed Internet connection, you can stream videos from any location.

On Demand supports both Flash and HTML5 video streaming, with available bit rates of 300 kbps, 500 kbps, 700 kbps, 1000 kbps, 1600 kbps. Higher bit rates deliver excellent resolution when video is viewed in full-screen mode or projected. Lower bit rates may be better choices in limited-bandwidth environments.
