The project started with the aim of developing an intelligent cataloging platform for adding value to audiovisual archives of the digital content industry, both at production and distribution level.
The ACTIVE platform provides the key features for managing audiovisual collections throughout their lifecycle and includes a set of tools for automatically indexing content by recognizing faces and speakers.
The platform can be extended using a plug-in system. In this way it can be adapted to future needs and scenarios. Plug-ins can use a parallel processing framework to reduce the computation time when handling large amount of data.
The platform can be accessed through a web browser and can be integrated with other applications via REST API.
ACTIVE will be released in open source by September 2015.
The ACTIVE project is funded by the Programme "Top-Down Cluster Actions (PO FESR 2007-2013)", which is aimed at encouraging the collaboration between research organizations and innovative enterprises.
Several enterprises from ICT and digital content industry have joined the ACTIVE project's cluster to contribute with new ideas and suggestions.
