Atlanta, Georgia--October 27, 2000—Internet2 members around the country will
use high-performance Internet technologies to hold the first-ever virtual
Halloween event at the Rialto Theater here on October 31st, Halloween night.
Artists at locations around the country will perform together with artists
in the theater for a live audience of over 500 people.

The advanced technologies used during the performance are being deployed and
tested by Internet2, a research and development consortium led by over 180
universities working with industry and government to accelerate the creation
of tomorrow’s Internet.

"This event provides a window into how artists will use the Internet of the
future in ways not possible with today’s Internet," said Ann Doyle,
Internet2 manager of arts and humanities initiatives. "It demonstrates that
technology usually associated with science can add exciting new dimensions
to the arts and humanities."

The evening’s program will include performances by artists from the New
World Symphony, the University of Delaware and the University of Oklahoma
School of Music. The Institute for the Exploration of Virtual Realities at
the University of Kansas designed special virtual sets for the event.

The event will feature a recording session with musicians in different
cities around the country. Led by Professor Henry Panion III, Ph.D. of the
University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), musicians that have worked with
artists such as Whitney Houston, Stevie Wonder, Gloria Estefan and Toni
Braxton will perform live from Miami, Los Angeles, New York and Birmingham.
As producer, Dr. Panion will interact with the musicians using broadcast
quality video as each records an individual live performance from an
Internet2 university campus. The individual tracks will then be mixed with a
vocal performance given live onstage in Atlanta.

Marconi (LONDON and NASDAQ: MONI), a global supplier of advanced
communications solutions and an Internet2 Corporate Partner, is sponsoring
the performance event. In addition to using Internet2 networks in the
performances, the event will be netcast in both VHS and standard Internet
quality video.

A crew from the University of Oregon recently traveled to Washington DC to
source multicast sessions for the MERIT sponsored 20th NANOG meeting held
October 22-24. Among the presentations was a Carnivore update presented
by the FBI's Marcus Thomas which is arguably the most complete and
detailed briefing yet on the functionality, use and legal implications of
Carnivore. This talk was meant for a technical audience, and the
dicussion and questions from the audience are very enlightening. Major
thanks should go to the folks from Merit/NANOG for managing to schedule
this talk, to Marcus Thomas and the FBI for their candor, and the NANOG
crowd for asking the important questions.

In order to facilitate additional understanding and discussion of
Carnivore we're making the video from the session available... see:

Note that this session is available to multicast capable sites as MPEG1
and both IP/TV the MIM/XMIM package are downloadable at the same URL.

FYI - this page was listed on Slashdot last night with predictable
results, if you have trouble downloading from videolab try one of the
mirror sites.

An H.261 version of the multicast session is in the works and a pointer to
a RealNetworks session will be posted at some later date.
