Just over three years ago NCSA launched NCSA RealTime, the first general interest video magazine reporting on HPCC. Covering a wide range of topics from science and engineering to the arts and humanities, the video magazine's six editions were seen extensively.

As a proof-of-concept, NCSA RealTime demonstrated that it was possible to communicate computational science and engineering themes to diverse audiences through broadcast-quality video stories. Reaching large numbers of viewers via cassette, satellite, broadcasts, and cable-casts in the U.S. and Japan, the program helped to spur TV producers at PBS, ABC, and CNN to create their own news and documentary programming on computational science and scientific visualization.

However, for NCSA, the rapid pace of convergence in digital video, computing, and telecommunications technologies points to the need to develop new, interactive channels of distribution for video programming.

As part of a strategic realignment of its creative and technical capabilities focused on outreach, NCSA will cease producing NCSA RealTime as a half-hour linear program. Instead it will create short, digitally compressed video stories with the latest desktop computer tools. Using NCSA Mosaic, these stories will be integrated with explanatory text and scientific imagery and then linked to the wealth of online information already available on servers at NCSA and elsewhere. The resulting cyberspace programming will be an innovative multimedia resource for anyone on the Internet.
