Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Large swaths of publicly available audiovisual archives collections across Europe have been linked and made available to Europeana, Europe’s cultural heritage platform. The Europeana Media project aims to increase the appeal, visibility, reuse, research of and interaction with moving image and sound materials on the platform. By building on the IIIF/AV framework, our aim is to deliver functionalities that will offer researchers, educators and the public at large functionalities to better access and incorporate AV content from Europeana into their daily living and working environments, such as video fragment quoting, support for subtitling, and embedding media. This workshop will go into the aggregation and publishing landscape for European AV collections and outline the technical challenges related to unifying streaming output from various collectaions and sources. We are curious to hear attendees' own streaming approaches and solutions!
