Media management, access, and distribution is a high-growth area for the research and education community. More and more, both education and events such as research conferences allows flexible access, remote participation, and time shifting. For this reason, conferences are often recorded for both on-line, real-time streaming and for time- and geography-shifted access. In education, lecture capturing and the ability for students for follow courses remotely or at their own pace is a growing concern. Advanced campuses are recording most lectures and allow access for either closed student groups or the public.
