Wezit is a CMS (Content Management System) unlike no other. It is used at the very core of the digital mediation system, and distributes content to all types of tools, often produced by different agencies.
It is thanks to APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) that developers can connect their on-site programmes (interactive terminals), websites and their open source CMS platforms such as Drupal or WordPress, mobile applications and Progressive Web Apps, or even the museum’s digital signage, to then distribute the centralised content.
Wezit CMS is organised so as to adapt to the specific characteristics of exhibitions:
The media (photos, videos, sound) can be uploaded in batches.
This content is optimised immediately to make it available in different formats, adapted to the latest types of applications used in cultural venues. The media can be tagged for improved indexing.
A search engine allows quick access to the desired media and to sort through the options (removal, indexing, etc.)
The media is described using the Dublin Core format, used in archiving and art management software, with which Wezit CMS can interface, to automatically import the content.
Managing the tree structure…
…or points of interest
Wezit CMS can be used to structure content for each level of the tree structure (for interactive terminals for example) or for each POI (Point of Interest) for mobile applications.
It is also possible to manage files from a calendar so that content comes into effect at certain times or dates, and to administer digital signage.
The points of interest can be placed on photographs or 3D objects, to administer interactions in discovering objects or iconic artworks.
Bringing together the content…
…used by each programme
With Wezit, you can assemble and update the content of the applications you use, in all languages.
An important feature of Wezit is that you can create a sort of container that holds a mini database and all the media for that particular tool. That means that Wezit CMS will not be essential in the daily operation of your programmes.
The Wezit platform is only used when you need to update your programmes, or for more advanced data mining features.
