WALLINGFORD, Conn. – August 7, 2006 – VBrick Systems, Inc. (www.VBrick.com), an industry leader in affordable video over IP network solutions, today announced that it is providing compliance capabilities for the Technology, Education, and Copyright Harmonization (TEACH) Act. Signed by President George W. Bush during his second term, the TEACH Act provides government and academic institutions with guidelines to prevent illegal copying or viewing of copyrighted materials in distance learning, course management, and related digital environments.
The TEACH Act requires organizations to ensure that copyrighted material is only transmitted to its intended audience – such as students registered for a specific course. VBrick’s EtherneTV Media Distribution System features sophisticated access controls that enable administrators to ensure that copyrighted digital video content is only available to authorized users or classrooms. Specifically, EtherneTV enables system administrators to assign and limit access to an organization’s stored and live digital video content. Digital rights management is just one component of EtherneTV’s robust capabilities to record, distribute, and manage digital video across IP networks.
“Educators are using VBrick to incorporate digital video seamlessly into classroom and administrative activities, without the management complexities that stifle dynamic and immediate communications,” said Pat Cassella, senior director of marketing – education, VBrick Systems, Inc. “TEACH Act compliance is another example of VBrick’s powerful applications that reduce administrative requirements while providing engaging live and stored video for students, as well as staff training and collaboration.”
EtherneTV is a digital distribution system that empowers organizations to capitalize on new learning initiatives including engaging distance learning programs, streaming lectures and other content throughout campuses and districts, providing video on demand content libraries, and enabling organizations to create webcasts for classroom content and training. Powerful EtherneTV administration enables users to manage their enterprise-wide video networks without increasing staff size, which is a key consideration for educational institutions with limited resources.
