- The ViDe 2005 Conference Planning Committee
Formed in 1998, ViDe (Video Development Initiative,
http://www.vide.net) is an international organization with the
mission to promote the development and deployment of digital video
technologies in research and higher education. ViDe's working groups:
- Developed the highly acclaimed Video Conferencing Cookbook, now in
its fourth revision;
- Led H.323 deployment in higher education with the Large Scale Video
- Developed the globally deployed ViDeNet H.323 network;
- Provided the underlying architecture for the Internet2 Commons;
- Developed a metadata application profile for digital video
description and access, the most recent version using MPEG-7;
- Continue to provide H.323 leadership through their work in the
development of video middleware (e.g. the commObject LDAP schema for
authentication, authorization, and directory services) including the
recent release of a new videoconferencing standard, ITU H.350, which
provides a uniform way to store and retrieve information related to
video and voice over IP in enterprise directories. H.350 was
developed as a collaborative effort between ViDe and the Internet2
Middleware group and supports H.320, H.323, session initiation
protocol (SIP), and non-standard protocols for experimental
