KIT Powers “Nautilus Live” Experience
Today we announced a partnership with the JASON project, in which we’re helping to broadcast “Nautilus Live” – a series of live, 24-7 video streams from a four-month ocean exploration expedition in the Black and Mediterranean Seas and the Atlantic Ocean.
KIT is helping to encode raw satellite feeds, organize the footage into channels and programs and deliver them to the web and a special channel on Roku set-top boxes, which have been distributed to museums, aquariums, schools and after-school clubs.
From the press release:
Both the Nautilus Live and JASON outlets are designed to give viewers the experience of being aboard the Nautilus ship, looking over the shoulders of the scientists and crew and listening to their conversations during the expedition–enabling participants to communicate with each other and learn about and share discoveries in real time as they watch live ocean exploration and shipboard activities during each leg of the journey.
We’re extremely excited about what this announcement means for the future of education. Video can help bring unique, in-depth experiences directly to students in a highly interactive way, and can inspire them in ways that no other medium can. By bringing this amazing content to any device with an internet connection, KIT is helping to make this game changing experience available to a much broader audience.
