This open dialogue centered on issues tied to critical Internet resources - the actual physical structure, routers, hardware and software that make it work - and the management of key resources, including the domain name system, IP addresses and the administration of the root server system. This open discussion followed two mainstage panel discussions earlier in the day titled "Transition from IPv4 to IPv6" and "Global, Regional, and National Arrangements."
The video clips included here were recorded from thousands of miles away from Hyderabad. They are a remote capture of the live web-video stream produced from IGF. The files have some dropouts, freezes and other glitches, but for the most part the video and audio are clean and clear. Special thanks to the technical advisers who handled the video streaming from IGF to allow remote participants to play a role.
Due to technical limitations on the receiving end, the first half of this session was not recorded. The clips here are from the concluding segment. A co-host for the session was Chris Disspain, CEO of .au Domain Administration Ltd and the chair of ICANN's country-code names-supporting organization (ccNSO). He is pictured above with Markus Kummer, to his right. Kummer is executive director of the UN Secretariat for the Internet Governance Forum. Another co-host of the session was Jeanette Hofmann of the London School of Economics.
These are QuickTime video files that require a high-speed connection. We will later link them on YouTube in a smaller, more convenient file size.
