What it is
Movio is a multifunction platform for the creation of multimedia exhibitions and storytelling as well as exhibition guides. It is based on open source technology, can be easily integrated with existing platforms and complies with access standards.
MOVIO is an open source CMS, a kit of tools, which enables web content creation and exhibition creation. MOVIO has a semantic approach; it can be defined as a SCMS (Semantic Content Management System) as well.
What it does
Enables museum curators to create virtual exhibitions and digital extensions of real exhibitions. It guides the visitor by means of theme pages, and enables the publication of multimedia galleries, timelines, slide-shows and interactive geographical maps. It allows building online digital exhibitions targeted to different audiences and aims to enable long term accessibility to the mass of knowledge generated by temporary exhibitions that, for their nature, have a limited life span. The content is shaped using different tools integrated in the software: media archive, ontology builder, storyteller, different types of image galleries, hotspots, interactive maps and timeline, a catalogue of all exhibitions created with or without movio is MOVIO-HUB (managed by the Italian Ministry for Culture), creation of paths and POIs on maps, etc. The SCMS is developed by GruppoMeta. MOVIO is released under MIT license that allows the widest possible reuse of software. The source code has been published on GIT-HUB.
Who it’s for
Curators of museums and libraries (working for public institutes, foundations and cultural enterprises), gallerists, archivists, librarians, teachers (schools at various levels, universities and professional institutes), tourist guides.
