The digital-content market is urging better pricing and value-for-money for industry products and services. This is clearly evident in the recent price policies of majors. Production costs must be drastically reduced without affecting product quality. Content providers, aggregators and distributors constantly need to adopt innovative means of increasing efficiency in order to reduce cost. Possible solutions to this challenge could be found by automating, accelerating and restructuring production processes. AXMEDIS architecture and tools aim at reaching those results by: (i) reducing costs for content production with artificial intelligence algorithms for content composition, formatting, protection and workflow management, (ii) reducing distribution and integration costs, increasing accessibility, with a P2P platform at B2B level integrating content management systems and workflows, (iii) providing algorithms and tools for innovative and flexible digital rights management, exploiting MPEG-21 and overcoming its limits, supporting several business and transactions models. AXMEDIS is a large IST FP6 Integrated Project on Research and Development.
