So here’s what I’m up to. These are not in order of precedence and are not exhaustive.
- Design a system and workflow for aquisition, digestion/encoding, and documenting (metadata) of content into the PATV [ or any other non-multi-billion dollar production company ] content store, which itself must be designed. Have to read up on the following free techs: ffmpeg, mencoder, sox, dvgrab, and MP4Box. Also, RAID for storage?
- Design/appropriate a digital playback solution for PATV. MPEG-4 preferred.
- Research teleprompter solutions for PATV studio
- Research studio control room designs (including equipment) appropriate for PATV.
- Research internet streaming and content storage solutions for the Iowa City PEG channels. Ustream and Blip.tv are current favorites.
- Research fiber optics, emphasis on Fiber to the Home deployment, and its applications to the Iowa City area.
