Support Scheme for Schools for Cloud-Based Video Hosting and Streaming
What is EnVision?
EnVision, which means “Engaging through Vision”, is a period bulk tender initiative by IDA, for the supply of video hosting and streaming services using the utility pricing model to government ministries, statutory boards, organs of state and participating entities. It was awarded to EvvoMedia and ServTouch in mid-March 2010 for an initial period of two years and was recently extended by an additional year till mid-March 2013.
Support scheme for schools for cloud-based video hosting and streaming
On 15 May 2012, IDA announced a new six-month support scheme under Envision for the provision of cloud resources for schools to develop and host their own video sites. A variety of videos can be created, ranging from schools’ achievements, performances, and overseas trips. Students will be able to use the video sites as a platform to showcase their creativity and efforts, as well as generate publicity for their schools. We hope to see more schools leverage this support scheme and in doing so, promote more active and dynamic videography and journalism activities among students.
Support scheme includes
- Basic video site development with five functions:
- Admin Login for uploading of videos
- Search function
- Add comment (with moderator’s approval required)
- Display Latest videos
- Display Related videos
- 100 per cent waiver of compute and storage cost (capped at $1,300)
- 50 per cent waiver of video streaming cost
Validity of support scheme
15 May 2012 to 14 Mar 2013
Videos will be displayed via:
- Schools’ registered domain
- EnVision vendors’ Video Hosting and Streaming Platform (VHSP) sites
All GeBiz-registered schools are eligible. Participating schools are encouraged to upload at least five videos on the video sites, as they stand a chance to be nominated for Best Video Site (criteria will be announced later).
Selection of vendor
Schools will select their preferred EnVision vendor to work with.
Schools will issue the purchase orders via GeBiz, quoting “Support scheme under EnVision” to selected EnVision vendor.
