Create More Using Public Content

Images for the Future

The largest Dutch digitization of audio-visual content project 'Images for the Futures' has started in July 2007. Over 137.000 hours of video, 22.510 hours of film, 123.900 hours of audio and 2.9 million photos will be digitized in the next seven years. Most content is copyright protected, but parts of the collection are being offered under open licenses. Third-party developers can use this content to create their own services. What lessons can be drawn from other projects and how can external developers be encouraged to create using this public content ? Some excellent international speakers such as Peter Kaufman and Paul Gerhardt will share their vision about one of the greatest challenges in the next years for archives, museums, libraries and broadcasters: how to develop new services and stimulate use of their digitized collections.

Two major questions will be addressed:
1. How to attract, support and stimulate external developers to create more using public content
2. How stimulate new business-models based on copyright protected material

The session will pick up the trail of the workshop “Preserving audiovisual archives: costs & benefits and community involvement”, organized at the iCommons Summit 07 in Dubrovnik in June 2007.

Peter Kaufman is president and executive producer of Intelligent Television in New York. Intelligent Television's productions and research projects focus on making educational and cultural material more widely accessible worldwide. Kaufman also serves as an expert consultant on access issues for numberous institutions such as the Librarey of Congress's Divison of Motion Pictures, Broadcasting and Recorded Sound an as video curator for the One Laptop Per Child Project.

Paul Gerhardt leads the UK’s Creative Archive Licence Group – a consortium of public and commercial broadcasters and archives developing a shared public access strategy. Till 2006 Paul was joint project leader of the BBC Creative Archive.

Brian Gruber is founder and CEO of delivers discourse, discussions and debates on the world's most interesting political, social and cultural issues, and enables viewers to join the conversation.
