It also offers digital storage and digital preservation services for cultural heritage assets.
Coosmo has been specifically designed for the management of large quantities of digital assets and it is compatible with the IIIF Image and Presentation API. It is flexible and adaptable to different needs such as protection and conservation. It allows the user to view content quickly and can be adapted for both the open source and the licensed worlds.
Coosmo simplifies the management of large amounts of high and ultra-high resolution digital images (Gigapixel format*). It ensures the protection of digital assets belonging to cultural institutions and to individuals with its modern online and offline tracking systems.
Coosmo’s intelligent storage management allows these huge images to be delivered in the cloud via IIIF and DZI protocols with the same performance and quality as standard-sized images.
Coosmo currently delivers nearly 20 million images and has been structured to be scalable to handle petabytes of data.
*Gigapixel images are the result of ultra-high definition digitization (600, 800, 2000 pixels per inch), which generate individual file sizes that can reach hundreds of Gigabytes.
Coosmo is based on open-source technologies and is able to display data and metadata that is managed according to different open standards.
It is extensible with third-party systems that display and consume asynchronous web API and messages. To meet customer requirements, Coosmo is integrated with archival management solutions (such as Hyperborea’s Arianna suite) and with general-purpose publishing applications (such as Horizons Unlimited’s MLOL). It allows you to search your archive either via a web-based graphical interface or by REST web API.
A feature of Coosmo is its single instance of the cloud service that delivers features and keeps separate data sets for the various customers who use it.
Each institution/client, identified as a "tenant," has its own space allocation and one or more web domains, logically separated and independent from the spaces and domains of other institutions/customers. Each tenant can create and manage dependent sub-tenants. This architectural approach allows flexibility in managing the allocation and separation of resources among individual institutions using Coosmo.
Coosmo storage files and databases have been selected and configured specifically to ensure automatic scalability as needed. In particular, the storage "archive" is configured to keep a permanent copy of all the files contained in it, and it allows the recovery of data even if they are accidentally deleted or modified.
Coosmo was born with the idea of security at the center of its design. All requests for access, visualization or modification of images and data are processed by an identification and authorization gateway that is valid following ACL based on Tenant, Users and Configurable Roles.
Coosmo offers specific features for image security management. It allows for the insertion of watermarks visible and invisible upon each image delivery. Both systems provide an effective tool to trace the origin of images that may be republished by third parties, in ways or contexts not allowed, while also helping to identify those responsible.
Coosmo is also equipped with an automated versioning, rollback and deploy system that can restore the entire application status within a few hours, even in the event of an extended error. In particular, it offers SLA with RPO (Recovery Point Objective) and RTO (Recovery Time Objective) respectively of 24 and 36 hours.
In Coosmo it is possible to integrate DZI and IIIF viewers within third-party sites and to offer users the ability to create animations and dynamic "stories" for cultural dissemination based on managed assets.
With IIIF you can enter the digital collections of large libraries, museums and international archives. The IIIF functionality allows you to explore every resource in the smallest detail, providing the possibility to deepen studies and research, enabling the user to choose which data to share and in which format, and ensuring accessibility and interoperability between different platforms.
It allows different applications and systems to work with digital images in an interoperable way, where users can more effectively access, view, compare, manipulate, download, use and share the resources.
Thanks to the annotations, it is possible to enrich the assets with the results of research and study. In addition, IIIF allows you to simultaneously compare and view assets from different sources, facilitating data comparison and analysis. In this way, IIIF promotes collaboration and interaction between institutions, researchers and enthusiasts, contributing to a better understanding and sharing of the cultural heritage.
