Each site has been evaluated and described by the BUFVC's Information Service, which will be regularly checking and updating the database. Sites are highlighted which have video or audio streaming. There are some 400 sites on the MIG database at present, with a planned expansion to 600 in the coming months...The database remains in a test phase, with some new entries to be added and further adjustments yet to be made. While in its test phase the MIG is freely accessible to all, but once finalised it will be available to BUFVC members and ac.uk addresses only."
