There are a number of services potentially available to us through satellites: a list of the available services appears below.
We are now seeking expressions of interest from staff on what radio and television services they would like to see available through the system.
Please list, IN PRIORITY ORDER, any of the services that you would like to see us provide access to through the system for learning, teaching and/or research purposes. Include your priority ranking, the name of the satellite, the name of the service, and the language. A short justification, no longer than a sentence or two at the most, should accompany each service request.
Requests can be emailed to me, by 2 August 2002.
Note when developing your requests that it is more cost-effective for us to take several services from the one satellite rather than one each from a number of satellites, limiting the number of dishes that must be installed to receive all the required services all the time.
At this stage, no subscription, or pay, services are contemplated. Staff requiring access to pay services will need to develop a substantial case for the provision of the service, and it is unlikely that we would be able to afford distribution of any pay services throughout the Division.
Our plan at the moment is to include the local free-to-air television services (ABC, SBS, Prime, WIN and TEN) in the system.
NOTE: All TV services are MPEG2 PAL unless annotated otherwise in the "Comments" column.
