New MARCEL Group 'MARCEL Multicasting Platform'

New Marcel Group Added

A new group with the name MARCEL Multicasting Platform has been added to our site.

In order to function correctly with all forms of artistic expression over the high bandwidth network, an important level of technical development in multi-site connections is essential in order to make the network space operate effectively as a space for art.

Since the creative mode operating over the network is interactivity, it is useful to examine the art forms already interactive by nature, the performing arts.  In music, dance and theatre interactivity takes place between the players themselves as well as with the audience.  They therefore give us a first important look at the improvements necessary for the network space to become a performance space adapted to those artistic disciplines.

The ideal in collaborating with the performing arts is complete communication between all players,functioning together over distance in the virtual space of the very high bandwidth network with an online public.

This working group has been created to build a better mulitcasting platform for artistic experimentation and production with the addition of tools for sound and image manipulation in real time.  The group is pursuing combining existing multicasting technologies with other programing tools to achieve that end.
