E' finalmente uscita la pubblicazione su QEbu!
Dobbiamo ringraziare l'EBU (European Broadcasting Union) per l'interesse dimostrato; citando dal loro sito:
The EBU is the world's foremost alliance of public service media organizations, with Members in 56 countries in Europe and beyond. The EBU's mission is to defend the interests of public service media and to promote their indispensable contribution to modern society.
It is the point of reference for industry knowledge and expertise.
La forma della pubblicazione è quella della "technical review"; 13 pagine in tutto, che entrano anche nei dettagli tecnici e implementativi di QEbu.
The EBU Technical Review is an online publication that provides an easy route to learning about the latest technological developments in broadcasting. Around 12 articles covering media technology are published each year, all written by industry experts and those directly involved in developing, testing and implementing the products and systems in question.
The Review, which has been published in some form since 1950, aims to make media technology and related developments accessible to EBU Members and the wider industry, including technical managers and operational staff.

QEBU: AN ADVANCED GRAPHICAL EDITOR FOR THE EBUCORE METADATA SET

Polytechnic University of Turin
The creation and management of metadata documents can be quite a difficult task
to accomplish manually. To address this issue in the context of the EBUCore v1.3
metadata set, we propose a GUI-based metadata editor, called QEbu, developed
during the Multimedia Archival Techniques course, held at the Polytechnic
University of Turin in collaboration with RAI.
QEbu was developed with the aim of providing a user-friendly graphical editor to
create and manage XML documents, relieving the user from the burden of worrying
about the structure of the data and letting him focus on the actual content. The
editor is usable by both experienced users and novices in the field.
QEbu has been developed in C++ using the cross-platform and open source library
Qt 4.8; this framework was chosen in order to exploit its natural features for
developing interface-centred applications, running locally on the machine of the
user under a desktop environment.
