AXES

AXES develops tools for different user groups to provide access to audiovisual archive material in new ways.

The goal of AXES is to develop tools for different user groups to provide access to audiovisual archive material in new ways, especially in the field of searching, browsing, navigating and the enrichment of archive material. Three axes are central here: users, audiovisual archive material and technology. In the search system, various sources, such as wikis, are automatically linked to the descriptions of audiovisual material. In this way, the existing metadata is enriched and the material is unlocked at a new level.

During the project, three different versions will be developed, each for a different user group:

  • media professionals
  • education & research
  • the general public.

The project is financed within the FP7 framework programme of the European Union.
