FOR TAKING PART
i2tv is a
model for an electronic arena that explores a new form
of live artistic production integrating on-line participants
with participants at a real physical location. The participants
take part in a networked real-time performance for a
live Virtual Studio production, from a home PC, an Internet
cafe, or as digital nomads with cell phones and palmtops.
Internet television combines the passive broadcast model
with participatory models of networked environments
and different interface devices. The system's multi-layered
architecture integrates technology for networked shared
spaces with audio and video streaming, virtual environments
and digital television. The audience on-site and viewers
on-line can also make annotations to the live video
stream, using their cell phone, palmtop or home PC.
They assume the role of a commentator.
