January 31, 2012 – Azeus Systems today announced that it has been awarded a contract for provision of a Multimedia Information System for the Hong Kong Public Libraries. Azeus’ scope of work will include the supply of hardware and software, together with the provision of a range of services including implementation, training and system change and enhancement services. In addition, maintenance and system support services may be required by the Government for a period up to 10 years from the date of acceptance of the system.
The new digital library system will integrate a content management sub-system, a multimedia streaming sub-system and various supporting sub-systems based on open standards and best practices of the information technology (IT) and library industries.
The new system will be a gateway for accessing various types of electronic library information. The public will be able to access video programmes in addition to audio programmes and digitised documents over the Internet. By making the system accessible also to personal mobile devices and extending the servicing hours for the Internet, the role of the system as a Virtual Library without walls will be strengthened.
