SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) has since day one provided state-of-the-art animation facilities courtesy of SMIL (Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language) Animation, another W3C specification. This empowered SVG developers to come up with powerful animations on any of the SVG features: shapes, gradients, filters, transparency, etc.

SVG 1.2 goes further into SMIL integration to the SVG language. Audio and video now join interactive graphics as media type supported by SVG. Additionally, new time containers allow for more powerful animations and an improved ease of authoring. This session will shed the light on these new features and bring you up to speed in a pragmatic fashion with SVG multimedia demos.
