Making the Most of Educational Video
Electronic Global Broadcasting System (EGBS) has announced the creation of the Spectrum Technology Suite, a revolutionary new group of interactive technology solutions designed for the education market. For instructional, source or any other type of footage, the Spectrum Technology Suite provides tools for students to extract as much out of computerized video content as possible. Drawing from the Spectrum Video Applications, the Educational Interactive Workspace application creates an enhanced student workspace to facilitate long distance learning.
The application tool allows a student to use video bookmarks to annotate important sections within the video, and hyperlink back to those sections when reviewing the material. It is ideal for learning applications on Internet sites, intranet systems or CD-ROMs. The proprietary Time Sensitive Video Protocol (TSVP) technology allows events to be easily linked to particular instances in time and space within a video. Some of the functions provided by TSVP include the ability to easily generate special video operations, such as multi-lingual toggle, video bookmarks, clickable video "hot spots," video illustration, picture-in-picture streaming video and more.
