WEDELMUSIC is an innovative idea to allow the distribution and sharing of interactive music via Internet totally respecting the publisher rights and protecting them from copyright violation.
WEDELMUSIC allows content distributor (publishers, archives, etc.), corporate consumers (theatres, orchestras, music schools, libraries, music shops), and users (students, musicians, etc.) to manage interactive multimedia music in WEDELMUSIC XML format. 
WEDELMUSIC objects may include: multilingual cataloguing information, music notation scores, audio files (e.g., WAVE, MP3, MIDI), image of music scores (PNG, TIF, PDF, etc.), multilingual lyric (XML), video files (MPEG, AVI, MOV, QT, etc.), documents (DOC, HTML, XLS, PDF, PS, etc.), pictorial images (TIFF, GIF, PNG, JPEG, BMP, etc.), animations and sliding show (FLASH, PPT, etc.), synchronizations, etc., in any format. 
WEDELMUSIC solution presents:
  • reliable mechanisms for protecting multimedia content and Digital Right Management, 
  • tools for automatic building, converting, and storing, digital musical content, 
  • a unified XML-based format for modeling music including audio, symbolic, image, document, etc., 
  • tools for distributing, sharing digital content according to several business and transaction models.  

Any content, any where under WEDELMUSIC Digital Right Management and control 
To distribute, share and receive music in symbolic format also allows to commercially exploit new functionalities for music consumers and, thus, it allows the opening of a new market for several specific applications: sharing of multimedia music objects among archives, librarires, publishers, music groups, etc.

  • AXMEDIS IST FP6, Integrated Projects, (as coordinator),, AXMEDIS consortium (producers, aggregators, distributors and researcher) will create the AXMEDIS framework with innovative methods and tools to speed up and optimise content production and distribution, for production-on-demand. The content model and manipulation will exploit and expand MPEG-4, MPEG-7 and MPEG-21 and others real and de-facto standards. AXMEDIS will realize demonstrators, validated by means of real activities with end-user by leading distributor partners: (i) tools for content production and B2B distribution; (ii) content production and distribution for i-TV-PC, PC, kiosks, mobiles, PDAs.
  • I-MAESTRO: IST FP6, STREP project, (as architectural coordinator). i-Maestro will utilise and improve upon current standards related to music education. The project aims to explore a unified educational model to maximise efficiency, motivation and interests in the learning processes and to contribute to the (i) deployment and improvement of ISO MPEG-SMR (Symbolic Music Representation) to support music education, (ii) the implementation of music notation/representation into MPEG-4, (iii) production of guidelines on how the music tuition courseware can be implemented in standard tools and models for distance learning.
  • MUSICNETWORK IST FP5 (as coordinator), Thematic Network, Technology Transfer, to reduce the technological gap from technology providers and content owners and distributors. A network of FP5 on which we have about 850participants, 10 working groups, 230 industries, etc. All the value chains of content and music industry are represented.
  • VARIAZIONI e-contentPlus project on the set up and usage of a content enrichment service on music based content by using solutions based on: MPEG-21 based, content processing GRID based, versioning management, DRM, collaborative content enrichment, content annotation, ;
