SIBE is a new student run producer and broadcaster of documentaries and live interactive TV which was launched in October 2011. Currently SIBE broadcasts via BlogTV but we would like to switch to YouTube as our primary output for live broadcasts. However, we do not wish to join the YouTube partners programme with the associated ad programme. We are also aware of Live Hangouts, which we will be using in some ways, but are looking for straight broadcasts for our studio broadcasts.
Production starts again at the beginning of next academic year, in October 2012, so we would like to resolve this by the end of August.
Can a YouTube representative please contact us to discuss ways YouTube would be interested in supporting the SIBE project through enabling live broadcasts, and perhaps in other ways as well?
SIBE is an incredibly exciting project which aims to bring together students from around the world: * Launched in 2011 in Warwick University, UK. We are currently setting up in India as well. * Aiming to create local (campus level), national and global mediums for students to engage with issues at each level. During our launch year, for example, we played a key role in the student elections taking place at Warwick University. * SIBE is entirely run by student volunteers. * In its launch year SIBE produced over 50 live broadcasts, most of which can be found on our YouTube channel youtube.com/SIBEWarwick
We have no doubt that SIBE is a project YouTube will be satisfied in supporting in our demonstration of how YouTube can be used to a constructive effect. We would be happy to meet with a YouTube representative in London to discuss.
