Europeana Media

Europeana Media aims to develop an Enhanced Unified Playout Service (EUPS), offering heritage institutions a media playout with market-competitive quality, user friendly design, and cross-border content reusability.

It will increase the appeal, visibility, reuse, research and interaction with Europe’s AV heritage available directly through Europeana Collections and third party platforms that use Europeana content.

Europeana Collections has shortcomings in user experience related to video content and audio recordings that prevent AV material from reaching its full potential: (1) differing playout services used by content providers; (2) current playout on Europeana offers no additional features that make AV more appealing and reusable; (3) AV content reuse is often hindered by not providing clear information related to reuse.

Europeana Media addresses these shortcomings through the development of the EUPS. In particular, it will deliver functionalities that will offer researchers, educators and citizens to better access and incorporate AV content from Europeana into their working environments, such as video fragment quoting, support for subtitling, and embedding media. In addition, the EUPS will be integrated into the Europeana Core platform, ensuring long-term sustainability.

Co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility of the European Union.
