Updates and New Projects

Thought it best to just have a quick update as there's so much going on at the moment I'm in danger of missing important announcements.

Just before I left for a weeks holiday Neil, Hana and I attended a kick-off meeting for the JISC Transcoder project. There's information about the project at that link, although I'll be posting more about this shortly. We've already had loads of interest both from content providers and interested HE partners who want to be involved in testing and development. To cause such a stir so early on is great IMNSHO. I'm going to try and get a project page together in the coming week, and unless anyone has any better ideas I'm planning to tag project announcements and direct links as jisc-transcoder. A project-transcoder tag is available for resources useful to the project. so we can get some feeds going.

Hana has already made huge progress on the first release (Which transcodes a package into itself, but lets us test the upload/download and cloud infrastructure) and we expect to be sitting down real soon now to put some priorities on the next release.

Here's an aggregated pipe of transcoder tags and blog entries.
