Invis Multimedia develops web-based video encyclopedia of India

Invis Multimedia Private Limited has developed an innovative web-based video encyclopedia of India.

Thiruvananthapuram, Nov 26 : Invis Multimedia Private Limited has developed an innovative web-based video encyclopedia of India.

The website (www.indiavideo.org) will have detailed sections on each state and Union Territory. The video clips will be supplemented with text in English.

The site will highlight the unique culture, heritage and geography of India.

Kerala is the first state that has been covered in the project with video clips on other states and union territories, which will go online by April 2008.

While announcing the agreement between UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) and Invis Multimedia, Minja Yang, Director of the UNESCO New Delhi Office, said, "One of the Organization's key mandates is to safeguard and promote the wealth of the world's cultural diversity."

"India is a vast country with an extraordinarily ancient and diverse cultural heritage. The unique objective behind this project is to develop an atlas of India that covers not just its geographical features but its cultural ones too. We are very pleased to partner with Invis Multimedia in the creation of a format that is easily accessible world-wide and that will raise awareness of the importance of safeguarding India's heritage," Yang added.

UNESCO is particularly known in the field of culture for its World Heritage Programme. There are 28 World Heritage Sites in India, but Yang said that UNESCO's principles embrace the protection and promotion of heritage and creativity in a much broader sense.

"Cultural diversity encompasses landscapes and buildings, but also rituals, performing art, traditional crafts and other traditional knowledge on nature. This is why a video encyclopedia is particularly well suited to depicting the full range of India's culture," Yang added.

Yang pointed out that India is a signatory to the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions and the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage, which were both promulgated by UNESCO.

Invis Multimedia has extensive experience in the development of interactive materials for tourism, including CD-ROMs and DVDs on Kerala, Ayurveda, and Indian classical dance, some of which have been honoured with the Ministry of Tourism's National Award of Excellence.
