Language and Cultural Preservation Tools

Easily search, navigate, display and organize rich multimedia content reliably, and administer cultural assets as part of your language revitalization program. Capture, create and distribute a permanent language preservation audio visual record to preserve some of the spoken languages and historical information of the region with podcast playlists. Our innovative systems contain support for over 60+ Indigenous Languages and over 150 international dialects using a translation framework that fully supports UTF-8\Unicode. Cloud computing using accessible online tools within the community, lets you decide how and where your organizations share material with a permissions grid for contributors. These are especially effective where internet is very expensive like in northern Arctic Rural Satellite Communities, so you can share with your community using a licence exempted LPFM radio station that can also be streamed online. Indigenous governments use our media players running open source software systems to operate licence exempt community radio stations and manage slide shows on digital signage in admin building lobbies to present heritage pictures and videos for community members and visitors alike. This is particularly important, as Indigenous governments traditionally have a rich supply of heritage material they want to share, but are reluctant to do so on the internet because it can get cut and pasted, and disappear. Regional networks of digital signage display panels can be used as communication tools in public places by providing text based messages displaying local content. For the cost of an Emergency Alerting System, First Nation, Metis and Inuit groups can include emergency alerts in their localized dialects and regions.
