Dear all,

below is a first draft of brief descriptions of 4 of the implementations/demonstrators listed on our website. We need these descriptions as part of the documentation of fulfilling the CR exit criteria for the ontology document.

Implementers are asked to provide descriptions of the implementations/demos, comments/improvements of the descriptions are welcome.

Best regards,


The PrestoPRIME Semantic Converter (http://prestoprime.joanneum.at/) allows the user to perform mappings between the following metadata formats: Ontology for Media Resource 1.0, DublinCore, MPEG-7 and EBU Core. The application infers alignments between a pair of input an output formats based on ontology representations of their formats and their mappings to an intermediate ontology. The mapping instructions (represented as XSL templates) are derived from then derived.

The EventMedia Live application (http://semantics.eurecom.fr/eventmedia/) is a real-time  and large knowledge base containing descriptions of events and media resources derived from several public sources. Its main purpose is to enable interlinking of the events with the according distributed media resources and people who attended the events. In order to annotate media resources, the Ontology for Media Resource 1.0 is used.

The NinSuna (http://ninsuna.elis.ugent.be/) platform combines the Media Fragment URI and the Ontology for Media Resource 1.0 specifications in order to enable a semantically enriched metadata-driven media adaptation as well as media delivery. A demonstrator web application for annotating fragments of media items has been developed.

The API for Media Resource 1.0 (and thus the underlying ontology) has been implemented and integrated in two different showcases (both implementations online at http://mawg.joanneum.at/). The first deals with an image gallery showing images as well as its metadata information. Here, the API is implemented as a Web service following the synchronous mode of operations. In contrast to that, the second showcase utilizes the API in a browser extension following the asynchronous mode of operation. The application enables a user to generate a video playlist, where videos and the corresponding metadata informations from different platforms can be arranged in an unified way.
