Axmedis framework for programme and publication and on-demand production
This paper presents the design issues and discusses various scenarios and usages of a cross-media production framework under the AXMEDIS project [1, 2, 4] which aims to create a framework for the automatic production and distribution of digital crossmedia contents over a range of different media channels with digital rights management. The paper discusses the overall processes and flow, from specifying a programme (time-table/schedule for a particular channel, digital objects to be consumed), to the processing and delivering of the cross-media objects which is automatically checked, monitored and produced, depending on the targeted distribution server. Besides creating and editing a programme for a distribution channel, this paper also presents the "on-demand" production scenario for interactive queries of content by the consumer. If the customer in interested in a content that is not yet available in a compatible format, for the particular channel, the content can be automatically generated and delivered for immediate consumption, with the framework.
