The service provides an open media platform to access an archive of images and video from several European cultural institutions and other sources. Reuse rights promote its stated goal to stimulate creative work by freely allowing incorporation into new resources. In addition to downloading A/V footage and remixing it, users can upload their own works to the platform to expand the collection.
Methods support retrieval of content files along with metadata in the standard Dublin Core structure: creator, title, creation dates, subject, format, source, rights, etc. Methods also deliver metadata in Open Archives (OAI) format. Retrieved datasets can be restricted by date, source, or specific record identifier.
