Dear Roger:

(5) I greatly enjoyed this event.

(a) I went through your archived video -- as Steve mentioned, my voice
was rather choppy -- probably because of only 26,400 bps speed
through the ordinary analog telephone line with 8x8 videoconferencing unit.

I noticed my voice quality goes down when you made a large
image of me -- as consuming bandwidth.

(b) Also, I found some error of your system -- whenever I click Roger
Boston's web site in the home page of Tampere event at
<http://www.uta.fi/EGEDL/>, video goes back to the beginning.
This happens even when I did the same at any point of your archive.

(6) I would be very much willing to try next time.

(a) For next trial, I would suggest that you use a projector of
computer screen, rather than 50 inch TV -- this is because any
analog TV monitor is less video quality than digital computer screen.

You may try to feed the output of 8x8 to video input of computer.

(b) Also, pls make a record for archive even when you broadcast live session.

(c) Pls check if FIRETALK works with my Mac/OS 9 -- pls let me know
its web site to find out if they offer free of charge software.
As you say, if I can control the clicking from my end, it would be much easier.

(d) ATTACHMENT XVI below is the list of the URLs which I used during this event.

You may have three frames -- one of them, say at the top,
can be another web site to include this list so that your
students can click one-by-one in sequence.

(e) This low cost approach will open the possible recruitment of
retired (*) instructors around the world to form a Greek style
mentor system with a small number (say, a dozen or two) of
students scattered around the world.

* It is really a shame and wasteful to kick out young matured
teachers and professors for retirement at only 60 or 65 years young!!

(f) I agree 100% with what you said that we need broadband internet
with PREDICTABLE bandwidths and QOS (Quality of Service) guarantees.

This is why we are working for creating (i) Global Service
Trust Fund (GSTF), (ii) Global Broadband Internet and (iii)
Global University System -- three of which I talked about
during your event.

Keep up with your good work!!

Best, Tak

Subject: Visit My Class?


is it possible that you might use the 8x8 to briefly address my class
this coming Tuesday night, 8/29?

They need a demonstation of the 8x8, and I thought if you could call for
a short conversation it might be a powerful experience for them, to hear
a substantive message of promise for low cost conferencing and world
collaborations from you.

If you are able to make the 5-10 minute conversation, we might let me do
the introductions, then you could give brief report on your trip to Sao
Paulo, and we'd mention for a moment our link to Guam, the work in
Finland, and stop there.

I have other speakers arriving that night via IP video, but none
scheduled via 8x8/ H.324.

The time would be maybe 8 or 9 PM your time, for 5-10 minutes.
Unfortunately the phone in that room will not dial "out" so you would
have to place the call.

Let me know, and "welcome back"!


I have invitation to visit Viet Nam soon after my October trip to China,
and a scheduled trip to India in January, the world rapidly becomes a smaller place.

Tak, the room is set up now.
We can test tomorrow, or Monday, or even late Tuesday afternoon before class.

This could get interesting, since you will be WEBCAST "live" to other distant
parties who can bring up your web page, enjoying the same thing that my on
campus classes will see. Locally in the room, I will have your website on the
large screen projector, and you will appear on our 50 inch big screen TV --
our Technical support team has rearranged the room nicely for just this kind
of event (thanks, Roland !!)

An arrangement of wires and linkages that does not happen very often, good demonstration,

- Your message via H.324m New York to Houston
- Simultaneous local web, twin big screen displays
- Everything "live" on the internet at both modem speed and DSL/Cable modem speed

Your 9PM is very good for me, then we agree, let me know if you wish to test
even tomorrow, as everything is already connected here.

This next Tuesday evening, 9PM Eastern time,
Tak Utsumi will address my class in Houston with a message that includes
his report on his just_concluded trip to Sao Paulo, where large numbers
of Distance Learning folks gathered for an international congress.

He will address us (from New York) via H.324 low bandwidth video, and
appear on our large screen display. Next to him, his Website and slides
will appear on a second large screen display.

Those of you who know his work may be interested to hear his remarks,
and SEE him yourself -- and also to follow his presentation in your
local web browser, if so, email me for a "seat" and I will let you know
the URL for the webcast -- we will broadcast this "live" in Real_Video
at both modem speed and 220K DSL speed. His message will be content in
itself, but the media used and their effectiveness or lack of it will be
message also. Join us if you like.

I am considering to provide a "talk back" path via FIRETALK, a
password-protected FORUM within the "International" group, named: HCCS
(for the Houston Community College System). -- that way your questions
might go straight to Tak in New York. And of course you will be welcome
to stay there afterwards and visit as long as you like, we'll just turn
down our speakers and go on with our class.

Stay tuned.

Subject: THANKS!


I wanted to write today, to thank you for your generous time given to my
class last night. Your presentation was very well thought, and left my
students amazed. Remember, these students are complete beginners, some
having never seen a web page until the very hour before your talk, and
none having experienced any kind of video conference -- certainly none
were aware it could be delivered via ordinary telephone lines.

I was quite dissapointed that the live broadcast was interrupted just
before you began to speak. However, had we stayed on the air we would
not have the "archive" which is now playing today in several parts of
the world, appearing exactly as if it were happening in real time. In
some ways we are lucky, because now this archive will be seen by many
more than might have viewed your address live.

Not only was my class enriched, but the effort to even do this in the
first place, and what we learned from doing it -- these will be of value
to others. Certainly it points the way toward truly low cost
arrangements for a teacher at home to address an audience in some
specific distant place, and through the linkage to the world's network"
extend this audience to truly world-wide reach.

Hopefully you will be able to play the archive completely through at
your end, and offer your critique after you have gone completely through it.

Thanks again!

Subject: Recap: 8_29 Utsumi Address

some may wish to learn what happened this evening, see below. -- rb


Our webcast began at 7PM Eastern, 6PM Central, and proceeded without a hitch
for 1 hour 45 minutes, after cycling in test mode most of the entire day
today. It was our first night of the Fall semester, and we did the usual
introductions, handling of the syllabus, course overview, etc. Tak was
scheduled to talk two hours into the evening at 8PM Central, and our afternoon
testing went flawlessly, passing his H.324 moving image nicely to the web
broadcast server for live broadcasting at 20K, 34K, and 80K simultaneously.

At 7:45 PM I gave my class a short coffee break to prepare for Tak's address
15 minutes later, and at that moment the broadcast server we use (20 miles
away) went offline with no warning, no explanation, and could not be restarted
in time for him to be broadcast "live".

Shortly after 8PM we proceeded anyway, Tak began his address and I captured
everything in Real Video at speeds of 20K, 34K, and 80K, as if it were a "live
event". Tomorrow I will place that recording in the same URL, so that you can
"relive the event" and follow Tak's address while you view his slides, as if it were live.

My assessment:

1. The video incoming on a slow modem connection was surprisingly good, quite
acceptable for a talking head guest appearance, and especially with
accompanying web. Actually impressive. Tak's moving image was 50 inches on
the diagonal on our Hitachi screen.

2. The audio was below the usual 8x8 quality, and at times became problematic.

3. Though I used a Proxima projector to display his web pages on the wall at
50 inch diagonal size, my students, every one, preferred to watch on their own
PC screens, following the web as Tak spoke, often positioning their browsers
according to his instructions faster than I could find the links myself..
There were 20 people controlling their web browsers to Tak's instruction, and
had they been in 20 different countries viewing this same live broadcast
nothing would have been any different.

==> Observation: the FIRETALK product can deliver better sound than the
8x8 video did tonight, and had Tak rehearsed with the FIRETALK, he could have
actually CONTROLLED all our web browsers from his home office in NY, forcing
us to see exactly what he wanted as he spoke (no need for us to touch the
keyboard) except to talk back, which we could have done instantly (recall that
a live broadcast is delayed about 19 seconds from the real time).

3. On the downside, the 8x8 audio was not as good as it could have been, and
the audio sensivity in the Real Video broadcast unit was quite below par --
the audio is not faithfully captured in what you will hear of the streaming
archive I will place online tomorrow. Admittedly I have heard much better
audio from the 8x8 in the past, and we did have a slow connection. Audio is
still the critical piece, and it was not quite up to par tonight.


1. Tomorrow I will place the archived video on the web at the same viewing URL,

Suggest you click up this url after noon, click in the right hand frame to
open TAK's website, follow his address and see if you can bring up the same
images as he speaks, in the same way we did it tonight. If you play the video
to the end, you will see occasional switching from live camera #1 to live
camera #2 to the ZOOM camera, and back to Tak's full image, even see the SPLIT
SCREEN display with both cities showing at one time -- this will give you a
better sense of our students, and how the room was arranged.

2. Since the message is so important, and since the audio can be much
improved, I would like for Tak and I to do this again, and endeavor to capture
flawless audio, then distribute the streamed version of that session as a
replacement for this one tonight, which counts more as a "learning effort"
than a parmanent finished-product.

3. Then I would like to see this SAME presentation made using FIRETALK:
- Tak could speak, ALL of us hear well, with zero time lag
- Any of us can "talk back", any time we wish, even whie he speaks
- Tak controls our web browsers, what he wants us to see, we will see

Each Day we come a step closer to barrier free exchange between the teacher
and the taught. This was a low cost attempt, and succeeded more than it
failed. My students got the message clearly, were overwhelmed and fascinated
by the richness in the material presented, and will no doubt spend hours
reading through the activities that were showcased.

Thanks, Tak,
Great job tonight!

Dear Roger,

I am excited to read this email from you and Tak.

Tak is the epitome of excellence in the International World of Distance
Learning, and I had the honor of meeting Tak finally at Brazil during the
IFIP Conference on IT for Competitiveness in 1997 when he also invited me to
participate in his Workshop and I presented a paper on Distance Education -
>From Local to Global (also presented at the IG National Open University in
India) and later at New York.

Tak is a living Encyclopaedia of Knowledge and I have been following his
meticulous work and support for People across the Globe and presentations
with much interest. I think this will be a great opportunity to follow his
presentation in a local web browser and I would request you for a "seat".
Please let me know the URL for the webcast.

I am also Cc'ing this message to two young, very intelligent and budding
software students who are interested in doing a project to develop a
component for a Distance Learning Website. Abhishek Sharma is located in
Galveston, close to Houston and Ashish Verma is at California. I hope
Abhishek may be able to contact you sometime.

Abhishek and Ashish, please follow this email and point your browsers to
attend Dr Tak Utsumi's presentation at 9 pm of 8/29th (EDT).

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thank very much for calling me yesterday, as usual you are very kind.
There was a problem with my server (Mandic, S o Paulo) that prevent me to
watching your conference, while I was connected to the server I couldn't
access the internet.

Anyway, today I get through the address you gave me, but of course there was
no video or audio. Is the recorded conference to be shown?

The server crashed 20 miles away we could not restart it. This happened just
a few minutes before Tak was scheduled to speak. So as he addressed my class
"live", I made this recording, for folks to see/hear, afterward, what happened
last night.

Sorry you did not catch his talk live, but if we HAD been live, then I would
not have this recording :)

Is the recording working for you by the way?
Idea was to follow his website as you listen and watch, to see how we
negotiated his teaching our class.

Roger, greetings again from Japan.
I'd like to make it to the Real Video conference with Dr. Utsumi,
so I'd appreciate learning the URL and so forth. Though I don't
have Firetalk, recently I got a microphone to plug into my wife's
computer with Windows 98 and started using http://www.dialpad.com/
to ring up people's telephones, only from outside the U.S. to the U.S.,
just for the cost of being online. The other person's voice is
broadcast through the speakers, so my Japanese family here in
the countryside could hear some English. My 8-year-old was
mocking me, saying "Hello, Mom. This is Steve." And they could
hear when she said "Give Chisato and the boys my love."
The microphone might also work in a computer classroom here
on campus if Firetalk is only for Windows. Thanks in advance.

This time things didn't go well from here in rural Japan,
but I'm sure you're concerned about the details for diagnostic purposes.
Before, during and after the live presentation slot I couldn't connect
with your server at all, so there was no audio or video streaming.

I installed Firetalk in a computer at my college in one of the labs
where I teach. Although they have Windows 98, the Compaqs must
be a little old, because a message said that it was not full duplex
for two-way audio, the same as when I tried Dialpad. They will
work on my wife's newer computer at home, however, if there is
another important event in the future at night, your time.

Today just after noon, late at night in the U.S., I played the archive
of Dr. Utsumi's dialogue with you, with just occasional Net
congestion at 20 kbps. Your voice was clear but faint even at
full volume on both Real Player and my iBook. Dr. Utsumi's voice
was even fainter and never clear enough to understand, unlike on
AmazonSat TV where I could understand him completely. The video
of Dr. Utsumi did not seem clear either, with his movements
blurred as if there were very few frames per second.

As you cited below, sorry, but the Brazilians win this time :)

Thanks Steve,
it plays well enough here in Houston, audio actually quite loud, though Tak;s
volume is lower -- we have had report from Costa Rica that it played ok,
some other locations, reports seem to vary, could be any number of things
ranging from available bandwidth to the quality at the original source, which
I thought was somewhat below par in our audio capture device.

For what it is worth -- I have observed myself that the video feed from
Amazonsat to this day since June is consistently ok and with clear sound,
while the video from China's CCTV webcasts is consistently the way you
describe what you viewed from Houston, including the sound. I am suspicious
that from the US to China/ Japan, paths may not be so reliable. Perhaps you
can play some OTHER video from my website to see if it might be path problem
aor file-specific?

Anyway thanks for the report.

We just keep pushing, ultimately will make a dent in this new network, which
is "not quite ready" for prime time, we need broadband internet with
PREDICTABLE bandwidths and QOS (Quality of Service) guarantees.

Tak, how did it play for you?

This is the part I am still suspicious of, the true available 'working
bandwidth' between your rural location in Japan to US .. could easily have
been less than that path to Brazil.

Roger, with your Brazil streaming files, I noticed that the 34kbs files
were of poor picture quality, while the 80K stream remarkable
telemed video <http://www.teched.org/hist00/brazil/telemed.ram>
was much better in picture quality, but the file seems to encounter
more Net congestion. That could show the limited available bandwidth
you suggested. Not so much because of the country location, however.
Although this is an outer island of Japan, we have a fiber cable
connection from my college, which I think is similar to T1. But I
have heard some stories from Japanese computer teachers, such as
the whole higher education network between Japan and abroad
going through a single floor in a Tokyo building (so they can monitor
everything; cf. China), and a narrower conduit within that to .co, .com,
or non-academic addresses.

In fairness I should have to say that your Brazil Website
<http://www.teched.org/hist00/brazil/> added to that
country's attractions.

Just now the Japanese government is trying to wean away from
traditional pork-barrel projects to divert budgets to IT. We'll
have to see how far they keep their promises to narrow the
digital divide in Asia.
