StreamStudio is an open source software, which is distributed free. The workshop will be led by Stoyan Kostadinov, Petar Slavov, and Tomax Kaulmann and is targeted to artists experienced in work with new media as aim to give them the opportunity to realize their ideas for projects based on streaming.
