|[Nettime-nl] [Waag] 9.10.00 European Streaming Media Forum|
Society for Old and New Media together with Dream Stream Inc. present : European Streaming Media Forum "The future of Streaming media in Europe: Creative force for interactive European content or ubiquitous extension of passive consumer entertainment?" Streaming media is the hot new outlet which is being used intensively by the media industry. In a one-day forum the Society for Old and New Media and Dream Stream Inc. explore what space there is for innovative, interactive content as opposed to consumerbased entertainment. At 9 October some of the most ambitious streaming companies like Canal web and Kataweb meet with small innovative players from the cultural field. Amongst them are some of the most promising entries of the Third International Browser Competition which was organised by Society for Old and New Media in May this year. The forum will take place on 9 October 2000, in conjunction with the net.congestion streaming festival. It will be held at de Waag and live-streamed on the web from 9.15am to 5.15pm: http://www.waag.org/streamingforum Participants from across Europe will consider visionary concepts, tools, projects and alliances, and ultimately will aim to set new agendas for streaming media technologies within Europe. In particular, the forum sets out to identify positive existing solutions, tools and products as a basis for future development opportunities. Potential cross-discipline synergies will be explored in order to initiate further practical trans-European collaboration across such related areas as streaming interface, open access to streaming tools, European streaming content, and open network infrastructure. Questions which will be addressed are a.o. the accessibility of broadband streaming facilities, the position of the media player versus browser, online and offline production and storytelling tools for both specialist and end-user and the nature and suitability of streaming content within a multi-lingual European environment. "The Society for Old and New Media is delighted to be able to host such a compelling European streaming forum in Amsterdam and to be able to contribute to European streaming development with our own tools and experience', said Director Marleen Stikker. "This is an excellent opportunity to bring together in Amsterdam streaming experts from diverse business and cultural areas for an exchange of knowledge which can facilitate visionary momentum and practical tool and content development", added Andrew Bullen, Founder of DreamStream. The Society for Old and New Media in Amsterdam is a cultural research and development centre for communications technology with involvement in an extensive range of national and European new media activities.
