Indigenous Language Revitalization and Cultural Preservation Tools

Create an Indigenous language preservation archive. Easily search, navigate, display and organize rich multimedia content reliably while administering cultural assets as part of your language revitalization strategies. Capture and distribute a permanent record, preserving the spoken languages and historical information of a particular region. Our innovative automation process support indigenous languages and international dialects using a translation framework compatible with UTF8\Unicode. These are especially effective where bandwidth is very expensive, as it often is, in northern arctic rural satellite communities, by sharing using license exempt LPFM school radio that is streamed online. Indigenous governments use our open source playout automation to operate license exempt broadcasters with a portable suitcase "radio station in a box". Pop up TV stations manage slide shows on digital signage in admin building lobbies to present heritage pictures and videos for 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 online because it can get cut and pasted, and disappear. Regional networks of signage display panels can be used as communication tools in public places by providing text based messages displaying local content with our video scheduling platforms.

Indigenous groups include emergency alerting system in their localized regional dialects as part of their membership programs.

Learn how to operate a web based media library server for an indigenous language revitalization archive project, creating a legacy language repository that you control.
