yovisto is part of the 'D-Werft' project

15 partners consisting of enterprises, universities, and institutions are cooperating in the 'D-Werft' project. In the project, all processes being part of the media value chain like scripting, pre-production, production, and post-production as well as the distribution, archiving, and commercialization are to be connected via semantic technologies. As a result, a 'Linked Production Data' Cloud will be created, turning Potsdam Babelsberg into a unique location of movie production.

The partners plan to invest more than 8 million Euros in the project of which the Federal Ministry of Education and Research will participate with up to 6 million Euros as recommended by the consultant committee on April 23, 2013.

As part of D-Werft, yovisto will support the core technology 'Linked Production Data' with its expertise in semantic technologies. Furthermore, for the sub-project 'Distribution Services', yovisto will support the implementation of semantic and explorative search, as well as intelligent recommendation systems especially in the field of innovative user interfaces.

Next to yovisto, participating organizations are filmwerte, Interlake, Schätze des Deutschen Films, transfer media, WDR mediagroup digital, the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society, the German Broadcasting Archive, the Film and Television University "Konrad Wolf", the Hasso-Plattner-Institute Potsdam, and the Institut für Rundfunkttechnik in Munich. Associated partners are Studio Babelsberg, GrundyUFA Produktions GmbH, e.discom, and the SAP Innovation Center.

On April 30, the 'D-Werft' group hosted a press conference, introducing the project and answering many inspiring questions by curious journalists.
