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 program. Capture and distribute a permanent audio visual record, preserving the spoken languages and historical information of a particular region. Our innovative automation systems support Indigenous Languages and international dialects using a translation framework compatible with UTF8\Unicode. These are especially effective where internet is very expensive, as it often is, in Northern Arctic Rural Satellite Communities, by sharing with the community using a license exempt LPFM school radio station that can also be streamed online. Indigenous governments use our media players' open source playout automation software systems to operate license 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 with our video scheduling platforms. For the cost of an Emergency Alerting System, Indigenous groups can include emergency alerts in their localized dialects and regions.

Learn how to operate an online web based Linux media library server for an Indigenous language preservation archive with a suitcase "radio in a box" as part of your language revitalization program, creating a legacy language repository that you control.
