Starting in 2004, a generous grant from William R. Hearst III, and technical contributions from the Internet
and Brewster Kahle, will enable MSRI to take the next steps. The best features of our old system will be kept:
access and the avoidance of anything that disturbs the presenter. But we will:
Improve the production values, lighting, and sharpness of the videos to nearly cinematic quality, and
use of available bandwidth.
Make lecture notes, and associated documents available as PDFs.
Encourage individuals and institutions to establish special collections of our videos, possibly
for locally given courses and seminars.
Greatly improve the indexing and accessibility of the material on the videos.
Make individual DVDs of any lecture available by mail on a low-cost basis.
Our videos are available as streaming videos or as downloadable content. Videos are in
QuickTime format as well as media files that can be used for creating your own DVDs. Videos prior to Fall
are in RealMedia format and cannot be downloaded.
This material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation.
Please expect approximately 4 weeks from the end of the workshop or seminar for videos to be posted online. DVDs
seminars can be purchased through a link at the bottom of each downloadable video page.
