In this approach, all members of a community participate simultaneously in a project on which they may have only limited access, where they collaborate with it in different ways, depending on their role, profile, and resources. The approach takes into consideration the mixing of professional and amateurs in a collaborative production.
At the heart of MediaMap is the pre-indexation of contents: describing it before producing it, allowing its conservation and reuse before filming. This indexation is semantic and goes from a new networking AudioVisual production platform (camera, ingest tool) to enriched publication portals enhanced throughout by a semantic search engine.
MediaMap is first of all, a “Practice Project” that brings innovation to the whole audiovisual production chain as a networking service:
