“We were not equipped nor chartered to be an ISP. Turning that business over to Apogee was a good business decision for Ithaca College. It’s been a win-win situation for everybody.”

Apogee’s residential networks support complete turnkey solutions for high-quality distribution of Video-over-IP, enabling students to view available television broadcasts using a personal computer via the Apogee residential network. Subscribers simply use any web-browser to launch an optimized player application, and never have to install, patch, update, configure, or otherwise deal with the hassles of a traditional video player. PC, Mac OS X, and Linux operating systems are all supported. A complete programming guide is built into the player, making video navigation simple. Applications include both live video distribution (cable TV feeds, remote broadcast of live events in real-time), as well as on-demand delivery of video and scheduled delivery of entertainment and academic programs.
