The IEEE has launched IEEE.tv, an Internet-based TV network that features targeted programming on technology and engineering produced by IEEE members. Featuring a variety of programming options including hot topics in technology, conference highlights and interviews with industry experts, IEEE.tv can be viewed at www.ieee.org/ieeetv.
First launched as a beta site in August 2006, IEEE.tv is a collaborative effort of IEEE volunteers, members and staff. Improved features include Flash video support, a list of most viewed and recently added videos and different options for RSS feeds, which enable Internet syndication.
