The eCHASE project seeks to demonstrate
Sustainable business models and processes that have
been evaluated and proven for a range of cultural
heritage content holders and content users.
Policies and processes for cultural heritage content
holders to filter and make accessible their content
according to the needs, prospects, rights and usage
of different user-groups at a European level.
eCHASE is a consortium of leading European publishers, software developers,
broadcasters, book and database developers as well as content rich libraries. They
have uniquely come together to combine their images, film, audio and skill sets in order to create Heart Of Europe. This multimedia based database is a new view on the
New Europe taking the view point of newly emerged European Union members with
incorporating extensive illustration material from many European archives and institutions.
The eChase project seeks to demonstrate:
- sustainable business models and processes that have been evaluated and proven for a range of cultural heritage forum content holders and content users.
- policies and processes for cultural heritage content holders to filter and make accessible their content according to the needs, prospects, rights and usage of different user-groups at a European level.
Just imagine being able to go to a single, on-line, site that provides a contextualised access point for the multimedia cultural content currently distributed across the museums, galleries, photo libraries and audiovisual archives of Europe. However, the current market for cultural heritage content is highly fragmented and typically constrained by national boundaries and language barriers. The diversity of content types, locations, languages, semantics, and existing services (if any) for commercial access makes aggregation and cross-border exploitation a major business and technical challenge.
This proposal seeks to demonstrate that public-private partnerships between content holders and commercial service providers can create new services and a sustainable business based on access and exploitation of digital cultural heritage content at a European level. The project is ambitious and takes an innovative approach to pioneering a market that has great potential, is under developed and is hard to quantify.
eCHASE will offer this rich and unique new product as the basis for individual, nationally oriented educational databases. It will incorporate non-consortium content
providers for editorial licensing and provide a new revenue stream within a new business model.
It is intended that the creation of Heart Of Europe from its specification, production
marketing and distribution will provide an invaluable guide for additional commercial applications involving images, film and audio.
Audi Q1 Forum
The echase project no longer exists and the website owner offers forums for the benefit of the general public in various leisure sectors such as the Q1 Forum forum all ready and waiting for owners of the new Audi Q1 expected some time towards the end of 2015 or early 2016.
BMW M2 Forum
Another leisure forum project that we have created is the M2 Forum , you’ve guessed it, ready for the launch of the BMW M2 set to surface from the Bavarian giants again towards the end of 2015.
Jaguar XE Forum
Lastly but by no means least, in fact the launch of the Jaguar XE is expected to be the first of the three new car launches mentioned here. The XE Forum looks ready to form a great community dedicated to and for SE owners.
