Resolution Videos Available in CityVoD
to the latest de-interlacing and encoding method, we have
included high resolution videos (the same as the resolution
of DVD-Video) as one of our video encoding standards in CityVoD.
In the past, it is difficult for users to watch clearly what
is on the screen when they use their PCs to view the CityVoD
files. However, with a high resolution video, users can from
now on watch it clearly as if they were in the seminar room.
Simply visit our CityVoD web page (select CityVoD under the
box of Computing Services Centre in the e-Portal) and click
on the high resolution version icon on the right of your desired
video, and you can experience what this new standard can bring
you. Please note that this version of video is available for
on-campus machines only. For smooth playback, it also requires
Pentium III 1GHz processor with at least 256 MB of system
memory and RealPlayer 10 installed.
