IBM Fireworks Partners Portfolio Venture Company
CEO/General Manager IBM's Digital Studio (MMPS)
Joint Venture with Sony Corporation
Multinational Content Publishing Partnerships
IBM's digital studio (MMPS) was an an IBM Fireworks Partners portfolio venture company. It started as a spin-off of IBM's Educational Systems division. The studio developed and marketed software products that combined numerous elements—video and broadcasting, print and publishing, and computers—into a single technology. The resulting interactive packages and compact discs were sold to business and education industry sectors and were marketed at retail entertainment venues.
IBM's Ulysses prototype was the first interactive multimedia program on the classics. The demonstration was shown at TED 3 (Monterey, California) and TED 4 (Kobe, Japan) and set the stage for IBM's Illuminated Books and Manuscripts.
Another early IBM prototype was based on the Japanese classic movie, RAN, and was shown in the fall of 1990 at the first International Multimedia Festival in Tokyo, Japan and established design requirements for IBM's Columbus: Encounter, Discovery and Beyond.
The first of IBM's multimedia educational programs to be published was designed for classroom use and included tools for teachers and students to create their own interactive projects. Five text-based formats illuminated with other media included: a poem (Ulysses), a letter (a Letter From Birmingham Jail), a play (Hamlet), a document (The Bill of Rights); and, a biography (Black Elk Speaks).
The video, text, graphics and audio libraries included with the poetry program provided an in-depth perspective on Alfred Lord Tennyson's immortal poem on the Greek mythological hero. The accompanying tools can be used by teachers and students to "illuminate" other poetry as well.
"The Letter from Birmingham Jail" contains civil rights reflections written by Dr. Martin Luther King while confined to the Birmingham City Jail. Multimedia commentary is provided by Civil Rights leaders including Ambassador Andrew Young.
"Hamlet" is a multimedia study of Shakespeare's classic play, including modern-day perspectives and interpretations of the work. Literary scholars provide points of view on the value of the work in contemporary society.
The "Bill of Rights" is illuminated by video, text, graphics and audio libraries through text interpretation, scholarly interviews, and historical records analysis. The work is examined with media examples that support or challenge the text.
"Black Elk Speaks" is a multimedia program based on the biography of Black Elk, the Sioux Indian who shared with poet John J. Neihardt, his story of Native American struggles, conflict and loss in effort to preserve Native American religion and the sacred Ghost Dance.
The Columbus multimedia program examines exploration from Columbus' voyage to the moon landing and how these events affected the world today.
The first of the Multimedia Publishing Studio's large interactive knowledge systems Columbus was designed for classroom use and contains some 180 interactive hours of multimedia content.
The Columbus program combines text, photographs, music, sound, film, and video. Rights were acquired for the use of historical documents, images, film, video and audio materials. Columbus's 14th generation grand daughter and her mother were interviewed reading Columbus's original Diary of his voyage, in Spanish and English.
Paul Rand acclaimed American art director and graphic designer, best known for his corporate logo designs, including the logos for IBM, designed the documentation and support materials for the Columbus Multimedia program.
Evolution/Revolution using the search and retrieval capabilities found in the Columbus program allows students and teachers to examine the time period between 1890 and 1930 from the perspectives of art, history, science and government.
