Webcast Service

With the advent of high end streaming media technology, the concept of doing live/on-demand webcast has gained popularity like never before. Webcasting an event allows you to extend the reach of your event to all corners of the world, with no limitations of physical or geographical boundaries. At NIC, we ensure that your events get an optimum webcast with flawless production quality. NIC's webcast service offers a turnkey solution for an event, bringing onsite production, hosting, and streaming to millions of online viewers.

NIC Offer

* Live Webcast : the transmission of live or pre-recorded audio or video to personal computers that are connected to the Internet. A user who clicks a link to a live clip joins the live event in progress. Because the event is happening in real time, fast-forward, rewind, and pause capabilities are not available. Live Web casts are most suitable for high demand live presentations to large geographically dispersed audiences. Participants can attend these virtual presentations from their desktop by visiting a web site. Interaction between instructor and learners occurs in real-time. Participants can use a chat window to type in questions to the presenter during the session. Web casts simulate the look and feel of a live event and can even be recorded for later viewing for those who missed the original web cast. This method is also less expensive than satellite broadcasting.

* On-Demand Webcast : Pre-recorded clips are delivered, or streamed, to users upon request. A user who clicks a link to an on-demand clip watches the clip from the beginning. The user can fast-forward, rewind, or pause the clip. Therefore on demand streams can be created from archived live events or recorded clips.

* Multimedia Presentations Over the WWW : The Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL, pronounced “smile”) enables simple authoring of interactive audiovisual presentations. SMIL is being used for multimedia presentations which integrate streaming audio and video with images, text or any other media type.

NIC can extend the live webcast service on receiving the live A/V feed at Webcast Control Room at NIC Hq, New Delhi. There are following two ways to have live a/v coverage of the event -

     Case-1: Live telecast available on any Doordarshan (DD) channel
     Case-2: Live Telecast on DD channel NOT available

Case-1: Live telecast available on DD channel

NIC has setup of DD Direct+ systems at webcast control room at NIC Hq to receive all national and regional channels of Doordarshan. On receiving the live telecast over DD channel, we will provide live webcast from webcast control room.

Case-2: Live Telecast on DD channel NOT available

     A. Network Requirement –If live telecast is not available on any DD channel then Network Connectivity between Venue
        and NIC Hq is required. The connectivity can be any of the following –

        1. NICNET or NKN connectivity at venue

        2. Dedicated leased line of Minimum 2 Mbps for each live stream (in case multiple live streams are required i.e. from
           more than one hall parallel)

        3. Broadband connectivity with one Public IP (to have IP to IP transmission for security reason)

        Note: The network connectivity has to be arranged by the applicant.

     B. Availability of Public Address (PA) system and video cameras. This setup will be required to capture the live event for
        further live webcast. If these setup are not available then the applicant may hire the agency for the same.

     C. Transmission of live A/V feed/stream from venue to webcast control room.There are following ways to transmit live A/V feed-

        1. Applicant to deploy encoder and generate live A/V stream and transmit to the Streaming Media Server. The streaming

        3. Using VC system (Min 2 Mbps or 4 Mbps capacity): Video conferencing system is required to take live A/V feed from
           Camera and PA system to transmit it from Venue to Webcast control room at NIC Hq. The IP is to be configured on
           VC system and using one side transmission, NIC will receive live feed and further live webcast will be provided.

Though this mechanism will not give quality of webcast but can be used as substitute to transmit live A/V feed to webcast room.
