Telstra has introduced a video-on-demand trial on its broadband Internet service, Big Pond Advance.
BIGtraining offers interactive lessons on the use of common computer software applications, like Microsoft Word or Excel. Users can conduct individual content searches, browse or play full-motion video and audio over the broadband network.
"BIGtraining uses technology which can be best likened to having control of your own personal interactive video player -- right there on your desktop," said John Rolland, director of Telstra Online Services, Convergent Business.
Broadband Internet Group (B.I.G.) spokesman Mark Thorn said Telstra Big Pond Advance has the bandwidth and speed necessary to enable full-motion video-on-demand applications, like BIGtraining.
"Users will be able to stream the video over the Internet to their PC desktop, accessing the BIGtraining content almost instantaneously," Thorn said.
