RESEARCH AREA: DIGITAL MEDIA OPERATIONS
This research project aims to create a public service for broadcasters via developer APIs and the shared use of media assets. Term of the project: 2020 to 2022.
The traditional media landscape is changing. Public broadcasters are increasingly becoming public online media organisations.
Aim and implementation of the MediaVerse platform
- SRG SSR is the first company to provide content and data via a developer portal using public interfaces as a public service. The API data are provided free of charge for non-commercial use.
- encouraging developers to integrate existing content and data into their own applications and ecosystems.
- The first MediaVerse API for accessible documents has already been published on the SRG SSR Developer Portal (https://developer.srgssr.ch).
- As part of the project, SWISS TXT will contribute in-depth knowledge of media workflows and technologies currently being used in order to define the relevant workflows for the project. We are involved in the development and implementation of technology.
- SWISS TXT will also be responsible for piloting the MediaVerse technologies in a citizen journalism use case (close cooperation with the Helios project).
