Would the YouView box be usable in a college for license reasons?
I always lean towards keeping a video based solution on site for 2 reasons, bandwidth usage and security. On site systems like ours integrate with AD and allow us to be confident that sensitive content can only be seen by those who should.
the licensing is the sticky point at the moment. According to the bbc website "... if they have taken out a licence with the Educational Recording Agency ("ERA") schools, colleges, universities and other educational establishments CAN record and access recordings of BBC Content for educational purposes under the terms of that ERA licence."
I've attempted to contact the BBC to see if that means we could use a YouView box to stream the iPlayer content into our ClickView server.Will see if i get any reply back at all.
I cannot say for sure but you may not be able to because the media being recorded wasn't broadcast over the local transmitter. Hopefully the BBC could clarify this.
