Annual Literary Festival
Video files for the 24th Annual Literary Festival have been converted to RealMedia, which reduces the size for Web access. Streaming the video allows the file to load immediately; however, from home computers, net congestion may make viewing slow and interrupted. The best viewing is from a campus network connection or home DSL.
Viewing requires the RealPlayer plug-in, which can be downloaded if necessary (Download Now).
The difference in the quality of the video is noteworthy. While Academic Technology Services filmed four of the readings with high-quality equipment and professional expertise, the other readings were filmed (much less professionally) by English Department staff using standard camcorder equipment. Archival copies of the full videos are available on VHS tape and on CD-ROM (avi format) in Perry Library Special Collections.
