IT Multimedia Development's (SCITMedia) goal is to become a complete
multimedia development resource for all Tribal
organizations, departments and enterprises. This
goal is to operate within the concept framework
of one of today's highly used buzz words "convergence."
What is convergence and what does it mean?
A simple definition: Video, audio and reading materials (whether
for pleasure or education) are all finding their
way to the Web as a major method of delivery.
However, convergence goes beyond that simple fact. With
the presence of Blackberry's, Treos, iPods, iPhones,
various other hand-held computers (since that's
what they really are), people are increasingly
seeking out entertainment content directly from
the Web that they might typically get from magazines,
newspapers, radio or television. In fact, recent
trends suggest there is a growing segment of
the population — particularly younger people
— who are growing to favor receiving their information
and entertainment through these channels over
the older, more established media outlets.
A bold definition: Eventually, traditional broadcast outlets (especially
over the air broadcasts) will be relegated to
fringe markets and the bulk of people will turn
exclusively to the Internet to watch TV, listen
to music, read the latest news, watch movies,
And, though most don't quite realize it, we're almost there.
- If you
have cable TV, and you have an On Demand service for watching
select syndicated shows or movies, you are watching streaming
video carried, in part, over the Internet.
- The older "traditional" broadcast networks have been experiencing
sagging ratings over the past few years.
At first they attributed this mainly
to audience fragmentation represented by the hundreds of cable and
satellite channels available to viewers. However, when they began
adding data represented by those who download "podcasts" of
their favorite shows, or watch streaming
versions of the latest series episodes available on the networks'
Web sites, to their surprise they found that their shows' ratings
had not sagged quite as much as they feared. As suggested earlier,
it's just that a growing segment of the public turned to these Internet
delivery options in preference to watching them at the "same time,
Where SCITMedia Fits In This Picture
- We develop Tribal Web sites
- We develop video product
- We develop audio product
We are the electronic publisher for the Tribe. Where print publishers
can make magazines, newspapers, tabloids, and
books in all their sizes and forms, electronic publishing has
the Web as just one medium, as well as "older,"
more traditional forms such as CDs, DVDs and
packaging for traditional broadcast outlets.
What we develop, as listed immediately above, helps guide our goal
to offer to Tribal organizations the concept
that it can deliver its message to the world
in ways similar to those employed by external
media outlets, but can do so — and just
a bit ahead of the curve — through this more
universal tool: The Internet. Web-only audio
and video news reporting. Web-only regular "radio"
broadcasts. Regularly scheduled Web-only videocasts.
The list can be long and the possibilities
are wide open.
And we're almost there!
