The Audio / Video Matrix: The Development of a Knowledge Base
MetadataShow full item record
This SIP has been developed for the reader to get a sense of the thought process and research that was needed in order to develop Dr. Hardin's "Audio / Video Matrix". It was evident in the context of the School of Information and the type of projects that both Dr. Hardin and Dr. Teasley were involved that the main push behind this database was to help ease the development of collaboratories, especially in the realm of videoconferencing. My approach this summer was to initially get a feel as to what exactly Internet collaboratories are. From there I did uncountable research on aspects of network media, video characteristics and audio characteristics. I spent the rest of the summer developing the database. Fortunately I had the help of J. Brian Kurtz, a recent graduate of the School of Information who had created a database extremely similar to what I had in mind and we were able to morph our ideas together.
