Geneza MediaINFO sponsors and participates at the "Digital library", a conference dedicated to digital content preservation and accessibility. 16Th to 18th april 2012, at the Ski & Wellness residence, Družba, Jasná.
The National Library of Norway selects Geneza MediaINFO Viewer to provide in-browser access to rare manuscripts & newspapers. MediaINFO becomes part of the library’s tools in its quest to become one of Europe’s most modern and exciting national libraries.
The Norwegian National Library (NB) has gone live with MediaINFO and, in addition to the original plan of displaying Norwegian newspapers, the Library asked the MediaINFO team to also handle all handwritten materials in its collection (letters, postcards, manuscripts).
Faculty of Chemical and Food technology, one from the faculties of The Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava, the most significant technical university in Slovakia, has selected Geneza's MediaINFO solution. This central European university will primarily use MediaINFO Server as the method of distributing digital books to its numerous students. Standardising on MediaINFO is going to help cut the cost, waste, and the physical constraints of the old paper textbooks and notes that are currently printed or bought.
The Wellcome Trust and the JPEG 2000 implementation group hosted a JPEG2000 seminar in London which featured MediaINFO as a case study of the format in action. The Seminar included explainations and discussion of technical issues that have an impact on the practical implementation of the format, and explore the context of how and why organisations may choose to use JPEG 2000. Geneza's CEO said: "We are pleased to share these insights with our customers and industry partners. We hope these insights will help promote cross-industry communication and collaboration on the strategic challenges facing our customers on the road to achieving effective digitisation of their collections".
PPUR is the in-house publishing arm of world-famous l'Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). It is based in the campus of the EPFL in an idyllic setting on the shores of Lake Geneva. This year PPUR is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its foundation and it has launched digital versions of selections from its collection leveraging Geneza's technology to launch PPUR MediaINFO. MediaINFO handles effortlessly items within the collection that would represent a challenge for any technology such as "The Treatise of Electricity", a monumental work in 22 volumes and over 8600 pages which is also the publication that helped establish PPUR 30 years ago. This and many other works are now available on the PPUR MediaINFO platform.
The 99 year-old newspaper celebrates its history by revisiting every single issue going back to its founding. Mediainfo makes l'emilie, visually searchable, zoomable and indexable as never before. L' Emilie is named after its founder Emilie Gourde, who campaigned for female suffrage in Switzerland. The publication is supported -among others- by the Bibliothèque de Genève, The Swiss National Library, and the City of Geneva.
