Web and Music


Thanks to the W3C’s “Open Web Platform,” it is now possible for anyone to develop and express their dream freely on the Web. In this session, experts will participate in a panel discussion to enthusiastically debate the increasing importance of the future Web and the combination of audio and the Web built on a common platform. At the same time, in a field where up to now special equipment has been needed for tasks such as broadcasting from remote locations and the fusion of audio and images, in utilizing the Web we can present a world created without huge costs while appealing to our visual and auditory senses.
