By definition, observatories are places where phenomena are observed. There are many kinds of observatories, according to the kind of discipline that corresponds to the phenomena being studied. These places are generally dedicated to astronomical or meteorological installations and observatories are usually located in places with suitable weather or other conditions for observing the objects of study.
We believe that, to open a new space for observing phenomena related to the audiovisual sector and new technologies in Andalusia, with an integrated process of reflection relating to research, production and innovation in these fields, the main point of reference should be the ZEMOS98 Audiovisual Festival.
The expansion of digital terrestrial television (DTT) channels, television-on-demand and personalised content, the rapid growth of internet video platforms (the YouTube phenomenon, Joost...), IPTV, videoblogging and mobile television... These are some of the reasons why the audiovisual scene has clearly undergone a radical change and audience fragmentation has multiplied the demand for content production. Meanwhile, video has allowed many artists to work with new narrative forms in recent times. Now, more than ever, content is the key to the audiovisual and Andalusia’s digital industry.
The new Andalusian Observatory of New Technologies and Audiovisual Creation, which starts out with the firm conviction that the future of the audiovisual and digital industry lies in content, will be presented within the framework of the tenth ZEMOS98 festival.
