Indiana University Goes Live with the Avalon Media System

The Avalon Media System is now in production at Indiana University. With this achievement, the development team members, based at both Indiana University and Northwestern University, are celebrating the successful implementation of Avalon at both project partner institutions. At Indiana University, Avalon is presented as Media Collections Online, integrating the signature Indiana Univeristy colors and branding bars. Media Collections Online currently offers publicly accessible content from several repositories across campus, including the Indiana University Libraries Moving Image Archive, and the Archive of African American Music & Culture. The production instance also includes video and audio playback improvements. New low, medium, and high quality playback options are available to users based on our testing of bitrates in a variety of bandwidth scenarios. We will be sharing these improvements in our upcoming release, 3.2.


Check out Media Collections Online for a peak at the wealth of digital library and archival media resources that Indiana University has to offer.
