A reflection on 20 years of media editing and narrative development

Dick Bulterman, FX Palo Alto Laboratory, USA

The last twenty years has seen a vast improvement in network, systems and platform support for multimedia content. The display of rich media electronic content is commonplace on even the most light-weight personal device and even video -- long the neglected child of media technology -- has progressed to the point that playing a single content stream across multiple delivery platforms is (almost) possible.

This talk will look back at the actual use of media content to tell rich media stories. We look not only at individual bit of content, but also how semantic narratives have evolved in determining the message that all this content presents to wide ranges of Internet users. We especially focus on the role of personalization of content and the ability of a content provider to tailor content to the needs of a diverse audience.

We conclude with a discussion of interesting challenges that will keep a future generation of multimedia researchers active in the coming decade.
