Explore Europe’s television heritage

EUscreen is a unique showcase of Europe’s television heritage. Beforehand access to audiovisual archives, television in particular, remained fractured and scattered, due to a lack of interoperability both at the level of metadata and semantics.

EUscreen aimed at achieving a highly interoperable digitised collection of television material. It has been set up by a partnership of 34 partners from 19 European countries and has enormous impact in providing access to television heritage and it played an important role in the advancement of the European Digital Library.

Deutsche Welle was a content partner and contributed to validation and dissemination.

The project ran from Oct 2009 – Sep 2012

Annotate multimedia content

CASAM was an annotation project. It aimed to simplify the task of machine and human produced semantic annotation of multimedia content. In contrast to clear text, information in multimedia content such as audio and video cannot be easily processed by machines. The project was motivated by the limitations of efforts to fully automate multimedia content annotation.

The goal of CASAM was to combine human and machine intelligence to maximize the performance and benefits in a semi-manual annotation scheme.

Cross library searches

PAPYRUS was a digital library search project. The setup of digital libraries including digitizing and classification of content has already consumed significant effort in the past years. Nonetheless there were no activities undertaken to make cross library searches available. For historians – for instance – it was not easy to conduct successful searches in news archives.

The goal of Papyrus was to close the gap of cross-discipline access to digital content archives. The project developed a digital library machine that takes in queries in the context of a specific discipline, looks for content in a domain alien to that discipline and returns the results presented in a way useful and comprehensive to the user.
