Streaming media is the term used to describe the real-time delivery of moving images, moving text and sound, over the Internet.

Content can also be saved and archived in webcasting formats, allowing Internet users to experience recordings of live events on line after they happen.

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.
