IPEA - Innovative platform on electronic archiving


The IPEA project aims to develop common standards for the storage and unlocking of visual material in Flanders. The VRT, VTM and Videohouse are partners in this project but in addition to the various types of broadcaster, other sectors such as production companies, arts centres, educational organisations, government bodies, etc., are also interested in digital archiving. More precisely, the project aims to develop a similar metadata model for access to the material, something which will increase accessibility for users and simplify the exchange of images.

Duration of the project

The project runs from 01/01/2005 - 31/12/2006.
