Digital Academic Television Network (DATN) - Product Overview
This document gives an overview of DATN. It is divided into the following sections:
The Digital Academic Television Network (DATN, pronounced "Dayton") is the digital replacement for the University of Wisconsin's Academic Television Network (ATN). ATN was essentially a full cable TV network operated by DoIT. As a replacement for ATN, DATN is intended to be more flexible, able to deliver live content via the network in addition to on-demand content, and enable origination of content without costly investments in video equipment.
DATN carries 28 channels, including local, national and international channels.
For more information on DATN, please see the DATN Page.
The DoIT Help Desk provides DATN support for users on Ethernet-connections on the campus network only. It is not supported on Wireless WiscWorld, other wireless, DSL, or cable modem connections.
DATN operates 24/7.
