Titel: From Old to New Media: Visiolink Case Study



In a fast-paced, technology-driven market, it is not easy to find firm foothold in evidence, so what to do? Martin Brynskov will share his insights from working with "old media", especially newspaper organizations, bringing them safely to new platforms in a form that is both useful and financially sustainable. Based on a case with Visiolink, producer of 500+ titles on tablet, mobile and web, Dr. Brynskov will present concrete case studies and discuss "what we know", including the role of paper as a reference for digital media use. The presentation will address interaction design, digital aesthetics and a bit of technical issues, e.g. platform strengths and weaknesses.



Martin Brynskov, PhD (CS/HCI), is associate professor in interactive technologies at Aarhus University in Denmark. He is also director of the Digital Design Lab and research fellow at CAVI Center for Advanced Visualization and Interaction as well as at the newly formed Participatory IT Centre (PIT). Working closely together with journalists, media organizations, muncipalities, artists, and industrial partners, he investigates the consequences of digitization and explores new forms of mediation within a variety of domains with special focus on the role of social interaction and interfaces. Dr. Brynskov and his group launched the first Danish iPad magazine in 2010, reflexX.dk, and he has been involved in the development of numerous projects and products based on social interaction mediated by technology, working together with public institutions and industrial partners, including LEGO Company and Bang & Olufsen. During his doctoral work at the Center for Interactive Spaces, he developed tools for social construction for children using mobile and pervasive media based on the notion of “digital habitats”.



Dette første arrangement adskiller sig fra de fremtidige erfagruppemøder ved at det holdes som en del af GOTO Aarhus, og det er derfor, på lige fod med de andre User Groups, gratis at deltage.

User Group registreringen åbner kl. 16:00 ved hovedindgangen, og som User Group deltager har du mulighed for at besøge konferencens udstillingsområde fra 16:00 til 17:00.
