This year, the graduation ceremonies of historic Boston-area prep school
will be Webcast via QuickTime. It’s thanks to the efforts of SoftTech Inc. and Channel Storm. Channel Storm’s Live Channel is being used to produce and distribute the Webcast.
Milton Academy communications director Cathleen Everett explained that the 200-year-old co-ed prep school’s diverse student population is drawn from an international community. This way, said Everett, the school is able to share the graduation ceremony with family and alumni around the world.
Live Channel was developed by
Channel Storm. Channel Storm said that Live Channel provides you with TV studio-like production capabilities. It provides high-quality encoding and real-time streaming for Webcasts. The software features capabilities like camera shots, music, titles and special effects integrated via switching. Live Channel Webcasts the stream in QuickTime format.
SoftTech president Patrick Hart said that the graduation ceremonies would be archived, and then offered on DVD format. If someone you know is graduating from Milton Academy this year and you’d like to watch, check out the Milton Academy Web site at the link above for more info.
