High Resolution Videos Available in CityVoD

Thanks 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.

Opening Hours of Mobile Computer Services Extended

In view of the popularity of the Mobile Computer Service (MCS) and in response to the need of students, the opening hours of the MCS is extended as follows:

Mon - Fri 8:30 am - 9:45 pm
Sat 9:00 am - 9:00 pm
Sun 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm

We hope our students will enjoy the new arrangement of the MCS.

Maximum Email Size Increased for Staff, Students and Alumni

In the light of the growing file size during email transfer, the maximum email size is increased to 25MB for staff and 10MB for students and alumni to enable you to enjoy better email service.

When you send email of large file size, please ensure that the receipt's email system is capable of receiving it. This enhancement is meant for some urgent or exceptional cases, and you are advised to use other means (FTP, web etc.) whenever possible.

Air-conditioning Renovation in CSC Student Terminal Area

With a view to provide a better environment for our users by improving the ventilation of the CSC Student Terminal Area, an air-conditioning renovation project was carried out during the last semester break, and the renovation for Room F and G were successfully completed.

To complete the whole project, renovation for Room H is scheduled to take place in the next semester break. The exact period will be announced later.

We hope that you will enjoy your stay in the CSC. If you have any comment, please let us hear it by sending it to
