Into this pool of software comes Avalon, but what exactly does it do, and do differently, from applications like Sufia or Islandora? Developed in partnership with Northwestern University, the Avalon Media System is an open source system for managing and providing access to large collections of digital audio and video. Used for library services such as Media Collections Online and projects such as IU’s Media Digitization and Preservation Initiative, Avalon is an application that provides a robust set of features related to media access and streaming. Come learn how Avalon’s focus on web-based access to audio and video materials is developed to meet the needs of both consumers and stewards of digital collections, as well as the unique role it plays in the world of digital repository software. en
