1.    CCIT update on Cascade Version 5.1 (Sandi Piazza)

Production Version 5 was released from the vendor over Christmas break; V5 should help with speed issues. We are preparing for the night of Feb. 8 to upgrade and move servers. Cascade will not be available during this period. Notification of how long the conversion is expected to take will be communicated to all users. Currently we have one server for MySQL, wwwdev and Cascade. As of last week, we have new hardware to move the MySQL database.

2.    CCIT update on Cascade Log In (Jamie Brown)

This will wait until after the Cascade upgrade is complete.

3.    Update on Video Guidelines (Elizabeth Anderson)

See attached document to read Compliance, Standards and Archiving recommendations. This will be taken to legal next for approval. Standards will be modified as additional recommendations and hardware are available. CCIT’s video enterprise solution is 88% complete.
