Web Audio Content Management System

Project description

Telemeta: a web Audio Content Management System


Telemeta is a web audio archiving program which introduces useful and secure methods to backup, index, transcode, analyse and publish any digitalized audio file with its metadata. It is dedicated to professionnals who wants to easily organize, backup and publish documented sound collections of audio files, CDs, digitalized vinyls and magnetic tapes over a strong database, in accordance with open web standards.

Here are the main features of Telemeta:

  • Secure archiving, editing and publishing of audio files over internet.
  • User friendly web frontend including workflows and high level search methods
  • Smart dynamical and skinnable audio player (thanks to Timeside and SoundManager2)
  • “On the fly” analyzing, transcoding and metadata embedding based on an easy plugin architecture
  • Multi-format support : FLAC, OGG, MP3, WAV and more
  • GEO Navigator for audio geolocalization
  • DublinCore compatibility
  • OAI-PMH data provider
  • XML serialized backup
  • Strong SQL backend

The Telemeta data model is based on ‘collections’ and ‘items’. A collection is described by its metadata and includes original audio items (sounds) and its own metadata. This existing model has been designed to fit the one of the French Centre of Etnomusicology (CREM) but could be easily adapted/overrided to sue other data structures.
