[Nettime-nl] NIMk: Pixxxel Workshop 4 december

Pixxxel Workshop

Saturday December 4th, 2.00 - 5.00.pm

The Pixxxel workshop gives participants an overview on recent advancements of free and open source software (GNU GPL) for media production.

The workshop is held by developers directly involved in these projects. We will be looking at:

   * VeeJay - Visual instrument and video sampler - GNU/Linux
   * VJX - Graphical dataflow media framework - Apple/OSX 10.6
   * HDSync - HD digital video syncstarter - WDTV Live / Embedded
   * Frei0r - Free plugin API for video effects - Cross Platform


Participants will be introduced to the ideas and intentions of the developers with a usage demostration and of course the possibility to use the software independently at home. It will be a perfect occasion to get in touch with the developers and find out about new opportunities on how to collaborate with each other.

No particular skills are required by the audience but interest in doing media production with computers, some knowledge of existing interfaces for audio/video software and being open to collaboration would be nice. Not just developers and users are welcome, but also designers and creatives who can make good use of these tools and hopefully contribute back with their own experiences.

Please note: Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptop!
