Content Management for Multimedia Project Development - User's View

Christine M. Okon, Okon New Media, San Francisco

Seminar abstract

Content is a word that has been defined, stretched and redesigned to meet the expectations of many industries and individuals who are trying to make the most of multimedia. Content is what remains when the technology wears off: the story, the intellectual property, the image, the song, the art.
Ms. Okon will compare the structure and idiom of different traditional media to define "multimedia" content within the context of multimedia project development. She will discuss the trends, challenges and opportunities of acquiring, developing, distributing and managing multimedia content for different environments and applications. Demonstrations of stock image CD-ROMs and internet sites will be included.
