Automating Production of Cross Media Content for Multi-Channel Distribution

The AXMEDIS project aims to meet the challenges of the market demand by: (i) reducing costs for content production and management for content composition, representation (format), protection and workflow; (ii) reducing distribution and aggregation costs in order to increase accessibility with a P2P at B2B level, which can integrate content management systems and workflows; (iii) providing new methods and tools for innovative and flexible Digital Rights Management (DRM), including the exploitation of MPEG-21 and overcoming its limitations, and supporting different business and transactions models and multi-channel distribution

The AXMEDIS consortium (consisting of leading European digital content producers, integrators, aggregators, and distributors; and also information technology companies and research groups)  co-operate to produce the AXMEDIS framework to provide innovative methods and tools to speed up and optimise content production, protection and distribution (via different channels including interactive TV i-TV, PC, kiosk, mobile, PDA and others).
