Recently, the Internet has shifted from being a provider of mostly textual information to a rich media platform; delivering high quality audio, video, and more. This shift was pioneered by sites such as YouTube, Flickr, Last.fm, Facebook, and others. The availability of broadband and faster connection speeds, throughout the world, has aided this shift. This change has brought new challenges to content providers, as they now need to organize and deliver to the customer not only textual content, but all other forms of media. While textual information can be easily manipulated, multimedia objects are a lot harder to work with.
Traditional Content Management Systems (CMS) have focused on organizing and manipulating textual information, but modern systems have more support for multimedia. In this book, we will discover how to manage various forms of rich media content in TYPO3 one of the world's leading open source CMSs.
