Tools to create REAL channels

TableauMedia.com, a new media development company In Los Angeles has developed a SMIL (Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language) Interface with the ability to insert Video Commercials into your interactive streaming presentation including dynamic Live Text, Links, clickable Banner Ads and embedded user Channels all within a FLASH animated "Player". SMIL technology is at the heart of the REAL Networks “Channel” system. What companies needed was a utility to keep their Channels fresh by using a database powered Channel Creation Tool, so Tableau Media created a browser based “SMIL Channel Generator”. This system uses a web browser interface generated from a database of Video Streams, Banners, Commercials and Live Text that allow companies to “Point and Click” to create updated Channel content, with no SMIL knowledge required. The SMIL Channel Generator has the ability to “Push” content from the companies’ existing web site directly into the Channel interface on an hourly, daily or “as needed” basis. User definable automated update routines, or direct insertion of timely content – give companies a ‘low, or no’ maintenance approach to Channel management. The Channel Generator can also render and output an independent “Channel” not attached to REAL’s Channel bar and accessible via an HTTP link from any browser. Television Stations, Cable Channels, Media Repositories, Independent Producers or Destination Sites can now create their own “Media Channel”, which opens the playing field for everyone. 16/11/00

The i-skin project, "virtual corporality", conceived and realised by the fashion designer CRSTOF, the architect, Naziha Mestaoui and the Laboratory for Architecture and Urbanism LAB[au] in the scope of Avignon 2000 exhibition , investigates the themes of Beauty and Body Transformation by confronting them with the emergence and the social implications of modern communication and information technologies.

Avid to release ePublisher

“With the coming of advanced streaming technology and high performance, broadband networks, we’re going to see an explosion in the use of video on the Web as a way to communicate more effectively,” said Paul Henderson, vice president of New Media Business Development at Avid. “New media producers want to use video to enhance existing Web content and, even more significantly, to use interactive information, graphics, and commerce to enhance the traditionally passive video experience. Avid ePublisher, with its breakthrough Link & SyncTM feature, for the first time will let new media creators rather than programmers create Web content that combines both video and information into a single interactive experience. We call this creating ‘Video the Web Way™’.” The demo on their web site is the best example of the technology. The product should ship in the US soon and elsewhere in the second half of 2000. However the real question is whether the bandwidth to make these new technologies deliver, will be available soon. 17/05/00

Pessimistic view of academic MM journals

The latest edition of The Interactive Multimedia Electronic Journal of Computer-Enhanced Learning (Vol 2 number 1 May 2000) includes a pre-print of a paper for EDMEDIA 2000, The State of the Art in Interactive Multimedia Journals for Academia by Jennifer Burg, Yue-Ling Wong, Ching-Wan Yip, and Anne Boyle of Wake Forest University. The paper presents a bleak view of the present "Nearly all journals that describe themselves as "multimedia" have only tables, graphs, and pictures, and the term interactive generally implies the ability to post comments to authors on a bulletin board, the availability of email popup windows, the use of hyperlinks to related subjects, and occasionally the linking of footnote numbers to the footnotes at the end of the paper.". However the authors hope that increased bandwidth and growing experience with the medium will lead to a rosier future. 17/05/00

Signwave Autoshop (product - sort of)

Looks fun, they say "Autoshop is the culmination of over a year's work on many autonomous, A.I., generative and 'creative' studies. It brings together many important aspects of research regarding creativity, perception, notions of value and/or authenticity. As well as providing a central focal point for a 'generative' multi-media system, it is parodying interface design and (both traditional and new media) software development. Autoshop takes the clean-cut, productive interface of a well-known commercial software product (Adobe® Photoshop® in case you hadn't noticed) and imbues it with ideas of self-generative, autonomous, (creative?) influence and activity. Autoshop is capable of being both a tool for generating digital images under (variable) human control, and a play-pen for artificial/digital lifeforms, A.I. bots, and pseudo-chaos systems. The output is entertaining, startling and thoroughly usable." Only available for Mac. 11th May

Creative workshop at ACM Multimedia 2000 (30 Oct - 3 Nov LA)

Bridging the Gap: Bringing Together New Media Artists and Multimedia Technologists

Are you an artist who uses multimedia technology in your work? Are you a technologist who builds multimedia systems or applications? Or do you straddle the line between art and technology? Too often, the builders of multimedia technology do not have an opportunity to meet the users of their technology and media artists do not have an opportunity to meet the builders of the technology they utilize. The goal of this workshop is to bring together these two diverse groups of people, with a focus on new media artists and designers of multimedia technologies. Presenters will be drawn from a variety of backgrounds, including academia, arts, industry, and research. The workshop will provide an opportunity for potential collaborators in the field of multimedia applications to present their work, network, and begin a dialogue around the underlying creative and technical synergies. Another goal of the workshop is to explore further the connections between industry, research and art and how they can be enhanced. Organizers: Marah Rosenberg, Michael Vernick, Lucent Bell Labs James Mahoney, Toonedin, Inc. 11th May
