The Clipper project is developing innovative open source software tools to help researchers, educators, learners and citizens make better use of time-based media. You can find out more about the project at this web link http://blog.clippertube.com. The project is working with a diverse range of institutions that all want to make better use of their audio-visual collections, including the National Library of Scotland, The Royal Scottish Conservatoire, The Roslin Institute (Edinburgh University) and EUSCREEN.
A simple but significant innovation in Clipper is the use of HTML as the native file format, users create clips and annotations with the data being stored in HTML / Json documents in web directories and in a database. This approach enables the use of URI’s to enable the granular sharing of annotations, clips and cliplists. This also facilitates easy integration with social media web services. Another benefit of using HTML as our native file format is that it provides a good format for long-term archival of information together with the related media files.
By storing data in both a database and web native format we think our architecture has the potential for a simple, powerful and scalable solution for storing and sharing digital content in the cultural and heritage sectors. Our poster shall show our latest technical architecture in the context of developing practical solutions with project participants.
