Project BITS Open Student Television Network
The Open Student Television Network (OSTN), a global channel exclusively devoted to student-produced programming, and BITS-Pilani have partnered to bring OSTN?s student-made programming video material from all over the world to the India-based campuses of BITS-Pilani. At the moment, BITS is planning on delivering the select OSTN content initially through the internal web-based portal and a Video-on-Demand system over its IPv6-enabled internetwork. BITS intends to begin at Pilani campus and gradually extent it to all its campuses in India via the Internet. OSTN multicasts short- and feature-length films, documentaries, performing arts, news and cultural programs. Students create content and make programming decisions necessary for the network to appeal to its peer-viewing audience. It also provides students with resources, community, exposure and experience.
