Digita online was (and still is) a collection of resources which aimed to examine ways in which moving image technology was being used on the Internet. It consisted of a general collection of Quicktime, AVI and MPEG movies, a serialised web movie titled Beyond, an extensive listing of sites relating to moving image technology on the web and links to what we chose to call 'internet verite' - the use of live camera to document events at a set location. The eclectic nature of Digita online reflected the multifarious uses being made of the moving image, particularly in WWW pages, or rather screens.
