In the framework of IBBT, a Ghent-based promoter of interdisciplinary research into the scientific and the business challenges of the information society, a two-year collaborative research project PokuMOn was set up (2007-2009). It confronted the problems of online distribution and multimedia archiving of performances and concerts.

This publication compiles some of the insights and lessons learnt during this project, ranging from sociology and media studies through management and law up to IT subjects such as semantic web and multimedia compression and storage techniques.
