Early registration ends March 9, and confirmed conference hotel rates end on February 26, so register now.

Multimedia applications, from digital video, to podcasting, to collaboration, to virtual worlds, can transform education and learning. Google and other commercial entities make it look easy. But how are converging multimedia technologies working on your campus? Can you really have the whole shebang? Explore these topics and more with innovators and leaders in campus digital video technologies from around the world.

ViDe is very pleased to announce that this year’s keynote speaker is Larry Johnson, Chief Executive Officer of the New Media Consortium, who will talk about NMC’s experiences with Second Life, as well as what’s next. Speakers from around the world will present their cutting edge research and practical implementation experiences with converged multimedia, including collaboration technologies, video on demand, gaming,
video metadata, digital rights, high definition “big” video and more. Visit the program page for more information on sessions and speakers:

A preconference on setting up video technologies for conference support will be offered Monday, March 26 by Megan Troyer, Ohio State University. Participants in this free preconference will “learn by doing” by assisting with technical support for this technology-intensive conference.

Kewin Stoeckigt, Australian Academic and Research Network, is offering a postconference workshop on Advanced Topics in Audio/Video Conferencing on Thursday, March 29. Topics include numbering (ENUM, GDS, etc.), security and high definition video.

Both workshops have limited seating and are filling fast so register early.

You can still submit poster session presentations through February 23. Visit the poster session page to learn more.

SURA ViDe is recognized as the leading conference on cutting edge digital video technologies in education.
Register now to learn about the latest developments in converged digital multimedia on campus and to share your own experiences with colleagues.
