UNITE System Requirements

UNITE media are delivered online as H.264 video streams and files, viewable on devices (computers, tablets) with a modern web browser or podcast aggregator (such as iTunes). 

To view the streams and/or files, you will need:

  • An Internet Browser

    Update your web browser to the current version.  UNITE streams as HTML5 files, which any modern web browser handles (we recommend Firefox or Chrome).
  • A consistent Internet connection speed of 768 kbps or greater (for streaming)

    Use the UNITE Bandwidth Tester to estimate your connection speed, or consult your Internet provider or network administrator.
  • Podcast Aggregator/Viewer (for podcasts)

    A podcast aggregator/viewer such as iTunes (for Mac and Windows) is required only for subscribing to RSS feeds or viewing downloaded podcasts.

Important Firewall Information:
UNITE HTML5 streaming video should be able to stream through most firewalls. However, students who plan to view the lectures at their work site are advised to check with their company's network systems administrator concerning firewall issues.

Suggested monitor resolution:
UNITE recommends 1024 x 768 or higher for best results.
When viewing the "two-pane" format, a monitor resolution of at least 1280 x 720 is recommended for optimal viewing.
