ARCA - Federated Access to Multimedia Content

Time 10/09/07 03:00PM-04:00PM

Session Abstract

ARCA is a system able to offer a consistent view of multimedia contents available at different institutions by means of a federated approach.

It automatically collects all the information available at the participant sites, in the format of XML documents (RSS 2.0) built from the descriptions of the multimedia contents offered by those sites. This information is then consolidated by the portal and offered to users by means of different search and browsing interfaces, supporting different event ontologies.

ARCA is in use by the RedIRIS community, and being deployed by TERENA. Ten institutions have joined the RedIRIS ARCA federation since its initial announcement in November 2006, and the portal offers access to more than 1000 content references, plus the live events available at the servers of the participants.

ARCA is an open and collaborative project, led by the University Carlos III of Madrid, with the collaboration of RedIRIS and four other Spanish universities.

The ARCA development site is at the University Carlos III of Madrid (http://arca.uc3m.es/), and the operational site for the RedIRIS content federation is at http://www.rediris.es/
