Intelligent Television has received support in 2005 from foundations, government agencies, and corporate underwriters to produce new “Open Production Initiatives” around unique sets of digital and analog resources in various repositories (the American Antiquarian Society, the Library of Congress, Library and Archives Canada, the University of Virginia Libraries, ITN Archives – London, Egypt’s Library of Alexandria, and Columbia University Libraries) around the world.
Subject themes in development include the history of the 20th-century American South, the history of Harlem, the 1956 Suez crisis, the nature of memory, and the visualization of culture, among others.
This presentation explains the need to create an educational television studio, to make educational television productions in the digital age more systematic and cost-effective.
The presentation will describe the work Intelligent Television has been doing with its current partners and build on the research and reports that Intelligent Television has been completing on “Marketing Culture in the Digital Age” with the support of the Mellon Foundation and Ithaka and on “The Economics of Open Content” with the support of the Hewlett Foundation.
The presentation will deal broadly with the business and marketing issues surrounding online content and digitized audio-visual archival content for education in particular.
