SALERO aimed at making cross media-production for games, movies and broadcast faster, better and cheaper by combining computer graphics, language technology, semantic technologies as well as content based search and retrieval.
SALERO defined and developed 'intelligent content' for media production, consisting of multimedia objects with context-aware behaviours for self-adaptive use and delivery across different platforms. 'Intelligent Content' enables the creation and re-use of complex, compelling media by artists who need to know little of the technical aspects of how the tools that they use actually work.
SALERO’s Main Innovation
Based on research into methodologies for describing, creating and finding intelligent content, SALERO developed toolsets to create, manage, edit, retrieve and deliver content objects, addressing characters, objects, sounds, language sets, and behaviours. The toolsets developed and the concept of intelligent content were verified by experimental productions.
