One MediaMixer use case focuses on the need of newsroom editors to easily and quickly find and re-use news video fragments relating to a news item within the news programme production process. MediaMixer partner CONDAT, developer of software solutions for European broadcasters, is working in the project on a use case and demonstrator for the Re-use of Video Materials in the Broadcast Newsroom.

Now there are two opportunities to learn more about this innovative solution to news production:

  • The Semantic Media Web Innovationsforum organizes events for a scientific and commercial audience, which is focused on semantic technology for the TV and media sector. The next forum will take place on 26.-27. September concerning: “Semantic Technologies – Exploitation and Convergence of Meta Data”. Rolf Fricke of CONDAT will speak on the first day on Wiederverwendung von Medien Fragmenten für den Newsroom im EU-FP7 Projekt MediaMixer (re-use of media fragments for the newsroom)
  • Prior to the IFA 2013, the Media 3.0 event is a semi-public meet-up of stakeholders in the TV and Media Sector (anyone can request an invitation but space is limited). Under the topic “Convergence@Work”, the 5 September 2013 afternoon session will include a talk by CONDAT on “OpenMedia SmartSearch – Semantik von Media Fragments in modernen Newsroom-Systemen”
