Lindau Nobel Mediatheque

Technical concept, development and operating of interactive live and on-demand video streaming platform.

Customer

The annual Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings provide a globally recognised forum for the transfer of knowledge between generations of scientists. They inspire and motivate Nobel Laureates and international “best talents”.

Lectures of Nobel Laureates reflect current scientific topics and present relevant fields of research of the future. Meetings and the lectures given by the Nobel Laureates have been carefully documented since they began in 1951.

Task

The resulting multimedia archive represents one of the most extensive collections of top-level scientific lectures.

The objective of the Lindau Mediatheque is to make this “digital treasure trove” (as it was dubbed by the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, FAZ) available to users and visitors from across the globe by means of a state-of-the-art web interface. Axinom has been chosen to develop both backend and frontend for the Lindau Nobel Mediatheque.

Solution

The interactive Lindau Mediatheque had been developed by Axinom and was launched for the 61. Laureates Meeting in 2011 in a first version (based on Silverlight) and at 65. Laureates Meeting in 2014 in a brand-new second version featuring cross-platform video-on-demand streaming and a web portal designed using responsive approach with HTML5.

The solution leverages Axinom CMS as workflow-based backend allowing cross-platform delivery of media content.

  • "The mediatheque developed by Axinom concurs perfectly with the implementation of our 'Mission Education', namely to support the exchange of ideas between academic scholars regardless of their nationality, age, gender or financial background."
