  • The Open Student Television Network, also known as OSTN, is a USA national student television network, headquartered in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. OSTN was founded in the fall of 2004 and launched its high-bitrate IPTV stream on February 28, 2005. The OSTN is an initiative of the CampusEAI Consortium, an international university consortium that includes institutions such as McGill University, The University of Exeter, Washington State University, The Hong Kong Institute of Education, and Foothill–De Anza Community College District. OSTN is an early adopter of IPTV video distribution systems, and delivers its program streams to affiliates via the Internet2 data network, in contrast to traditional broadcast television satellite or fibre-optic distribution methods. The use of Internet2 and similar high speed data networks allows OSTN to deliver broadcast-quality video to its member schools without the use of dedicated transmission equipment. OSTN's IPTV distribution system allows viewers to see OSTN on both traditional television sets, as the network is often available on a college's campus cable television system, as well as via their computers, via a cross-platform video player with a common interface on Windows, Macintosh, and Linux/Unix systems. In addition to its IPTV over Internet2 broadcast streams, OSTN is available as a featured channel on the Joost platform, allowing OSTN content to be viewed outside of the college campus for the first time. OSTN content is also featured on MyspaceTV, and OSTN News content is available via the Associated Press worldwide network of online video distribution. (en)
