RAF Museum re-opening

The RAF Museum London has re-opened after a multi-million pound redevelopment and our CIIM middleware is providing its digital content delivery platform on the web, mobile and in-gallery.

Using CIIM’s flexible submission API, multiple publication endpoints and Portfolio DAMS integration, the project delivers data to kiosks, BYOD tours and the RAF Stories web and mobile app. Data submission is from a mobile and in-museum authoring environment and CIIM also provides video transcoding functionality for delivery of video to mobile and desktop sites.

Key features:-

  • Portfolio DAMS integration for media and metadata submission and retrieval
  • Submission API used by multiple authoring environments
  • Custom metadata models for interactive experiences and RAF stories
  • Zoomable image creation
  • 3D image delivery
  • In-gallery and cloud (Azure) publication endpoints for data and media

Vernon systems collection management integration is to follow in Q4 of this year.

The public facing and authoring environment interface components were developed by our friends at Open Culture
