AthenaWeb is a video portal and audiovisual workstation. Think of it as the YouTube for science audiovisual professionals. It is a typical input-output system. Input comes from contributors and partners who provide AthenaWeb with the news and films, and other content to drive the market place and events. Output is both public and private.

The public can view hundreds of films usually of non-broadcast quality (which means they are created by, for example, institutions, labs and other organisations who do not necessarily wish to make a profit on the film) which are cleared for streaming only under some 20 different scientific categories in AthenaWeb's library. A selection of top hit films is also made available in full-screen viewing. Browse the library or do a quick search with key words.

There are also two categories of registered users:

  1. broadcaster and professional producers
  2. scientists and the education community (teachers, students, professors, academic institutions)

Broadcast quality films are also hosted on AthenaWeb but are restricted viewing only (and in respect of rights and agreements for the film). In some cases, downloading is possible with permission and respecting the agreed rights.
