- should try Nuxeo DAM/DM edition
- rich customisable semantic vocabularies, uses Jena api and Apache Stanbol semantic entities
- Advanced image processing (JAI, ImageJ, Sanselan), image preview storyboard of videos, area annotations
- Faceted filtering
- Various Metadata, eg geographic coverage
- used by CollectionSpace and BBC Mobile Portal (100M hits/m)
- completely open source (they don't sell software but maintenance services)
- Mike@SSL and Vlado asked ourselves whether CollectionSpace is an appropriate DMS choice for ResearchSpace
-- Browsed a bit the demo installation on their site, but couldn't find any attached images/docs
-- Mike asked Oldman if CollectionSpace used a CMS. He said it uses Nuxeo
-- Mike: This must be quite a strong pointer in favour of Nuxeo, although both Nuxeo and Alfresco are Java.
-- Oldman has been trying to get SSL to commercialize CollectionSpace, which is a Mellon-funded project to develop a collection management system
- PavelCh is positively impressed by Nuxeo. He says it seems easier to develop with (whereas Alfresco is easier to customize)
-- TODO Pavel: look at Nuxeo's semantic capabilities
-- TODO ITT: run a Nuxeo dev tutorial and try to compare to Alfresco dev (which is easier...)
