Abstract

Here we are presenting a solution we developed for multimedia objects conversion in the digital repository that is being built under SYNAT/PASSIM project [1]. Our aim was to create tools for online format conversion of multimedia objects in a most simple way. We have studied available open source libraries and tools, and proposed an efficient way of integrating them into digital repository conversion module. Open structure of the formats supported by the constructed repository lead us to a plug-in based architecture. Here we are presenting the outline of our solution.
