SaskTel and DigitalGlue to upgrade Saskatchewan’s e-learning website

DigitalGlue and SaskTel partner again

DigitalGlue and SaskTel have one again partnered to provide a major hardware refresh and software upgrade to the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education’s eCast Distance Learning System.

 

The original eCast system, a self-service website, was designed and delivered by DigitalGlue to SaskTel in 2013 to enable administrators and teachers to schedule distance learning classes for satellite broadcast and simulcast Web streaming. Three years later, the two companies are working together again to provide an upgrade of the live-streaming and VOD system that will increase the number of simultaneous channels from 4 SD to 10 HD, eliminate baseband SDI input in favor of an all IP infrastructure, reduce complexity and improve reliability by migrating to a solution using all Wowza video processing rather than a mixture of encoder vendors.

 

In addition to the eCast upgrade, DigitalGlue is providing the Ministry of Education with a hardware update for the Ministry’s ROVER (Recommended Online Video Education Resources) System. This includes (3) Dell Servers, as well as a second storage server system.

 

“We are honored that SaskTel returned to us to take the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education’s cCast system to another level of functionality and quality”, has said Sean Busby, president of DigitalGlue. “The upgraded e-learning site promises to be robust, feature-rich and easy to use, with enhanced live-streaming and VOD capabilities”.
