Streaming Media NY Conference and Exhibition Attracts 2,500 Attendees and More Than 100 Speakers

May 22, 2003, Medford, NJ—More than 2,500 gathered May 6–8 at the New York Hilton and Towers in New York, N.Y. for the Streaming Media NY Conference and Exhibition.

Organized by Information Today, Inc. (ITI), Streaming Media NY united professionals from all over the country to learn about the real-world implementations of streaming media technology and applications in the enterprise, financial, and government sectors.

The three-day conference consisted of 30 interactive sessions with more than 100 speakers and presenters from the technology and enterprise industries discussing the practical business uses of streaming media today. On hand were many enterprise, education, and government speakers representing companies such as Bank of America, Bloomberg, CitiMedia, Columbia University, CSFB, Ford Motor Company, Harvard Business School, Johnson & Johnson, JPMorgan Chase, MasterCard, Morgan Stanley, NASA, National Institutes of Health, National Institute of Standards & Technology, Philips Medical Systems, New York University School of Law, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Thomson Financial Corporate Group, and the University of Michigan Business School.

Many of the leading technology companies were also represented with speakers from companies such as Akamai, Apple, Arbitron, Cable & Wireless, HiWire, Keynote, Mazingo, Microsoft, Mirror Image, MusicNet, ON24, Placeware, PressPlay, RealNetworks, Sonic Foundry, Speedera, Virage, VitalStream, and WebEx.

Of special interest was the beginner's technical workshop taught by Steve Mack, author of The Streaming Media Bible. This workshop covered all facets of the streaming media process, including content production, encoding, serving, and live broadcasts—everything from content creation to distribution. The session also covered the strategic opportunities and practical issues to be aware of when deploying streaming media in the Webcasting environment.

The exhibit hall at Streaming Media NY showcased the latest in streaming and digital media technologies. Companies offered visitors a look into live Webcasting applications, enterprise software applications, encoding and hosting, and more. A steady stream of traffic filled the exhibit hall throughout the three-day event, and the presentation theatre in the exhibit hall proved to be a valuable addition for those visiting the exhibits.

The next Streaming Media conference will be held October 14–16, 2003, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California. For more information on Streaming Media CA, please contact Information Today, Inc. at (800) 300-9868 [outside the U.S. call (609) 654-6266], e-mail, or visit
