                How to Create a Free Infrastructure for
                 Multimedia and Internet TV Production

   Ever have an idea for a TV show, a stage production, or a movie script?
   How do you get everyone on the same page?  Collaboration is a very hot
   issue right now, and with good reason. Through the use of several
   cross-platform and web based applications, you can share documents,
   scripts, and whiteboards, while using VOIP, IM and chat all at the same
   time. These tools can be used for many other purposes as well, including
   workplace tasks.  They are well suited for small offices and startup
   companies.  The total software cost of this infrastructure is a whopping
   ZERO! The preferred OS is Linux of course, and all of the applications
   required are Open Source, but if you are running Windows you can still
   get on the same page. You can use all open source applications for video
   editing and graphics production, even subtitling.

 About Ira Hyman:
   Ira Hyman is the Director of the development team, is a
   long-time NYLUG member, and believes in the power of Linux and FOSS to
   change the way we live for the better. Ira previously presented to NYLUG
   exactly one year ago at our March 2007 meeting.
