Live events, recorded programming, and video coverage of SIGGRAPH 98
broadcast throughout the Orange County Convention Center and beyond.
For SIGGRAPH 98, SIGGRAPH TV and SIGGRAPH Online joined forces to
create a prototype 21st century "all-media" production facility.
Throughout the conference week, this state-of-the-art television
studio, production facility, and multimedia broadcast center
created and broadcast almost 60 hours of television
programming and Internet content.
The facility occupied more than 6,000 square feet and
included the very latest in television and Internet
hardware and software. The programming created in the
facility was broadcast to over 30,000 attendees during
SIGGRAPH 98, provided locally to SIGGRAPH 98 shuttle
buses, and delivered to 200 million Internet users in
over 200 countries through a variety of "streaming"
media and Web-based reporting.
A staff of more than 50 producers, editors,
scriptwriters, graphic artists, computer
administrators, online publishers, and
technical personnel was brought together
to produce this week-long event. The
content included the world's best computer
animations, interviews, and daily in-depth
coverage of the 25th international conference
on computer graphics and interactive techniques.
Designed as a showcase of technology, this
facility was open to all SIGGRAPH 98 attendees.
During production, attendees took self-guided
tours through the facility and watched as television
content was edited for broadcast and the Internet,
and viewed first-hand the equipment used to create
the content and manage the process.
