ReVI Project (2018-2019)

The ReVI project focused on the Resource Viewer of the Media Suite, a Virtual Research Environment (VRE) providing research access to the rich archives of the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision. The aim of the ReVI project, a pilot project within CLARIAH, was to enhance the user experience in the main media player of the Media Suite, in particular to provide more meaningful access to temporal metadata.

The project resulted in a prototype timeline viewer, which was evaluated in a user study with media scholars, and subsequently improved. The results from the user study were presented at the DH Benelux 2019 conference, receiving the best paper award. The findings are currently integrated into the CLARIAH Media Suite.
