  • (1888PressRelease) November 25, 2011 - iSOCO is already working on the technological unification of all the digital platforms of the CCCB, which will centralise all the exhibitions in a single channel to optimise resources.

    iSOCO has developed the innovative virtual platform for the Global Screen, the original collective reflection experiment on the power of screens in modern-day society. With the aim of encouraging the participation of viewers in the project, iSOCO has integrated, into a single website,, the Vimeo video sharing and archiving tool, supported on a Liferay content management platform.

    'Pantalla Global' analyses the influence of screens (cinema, television, computers and, more recently, mobile telephones) on our everyday lives. For the first time an exhibition is born and dies online and coexists with the physical exhibition, which will take place at the CCCB from January 24 to May 27, 2012. It is a co-creation experiment that will be fed by individual contributions and interaction with the public.

    To materialise this project based on the book of the same name by Gilles Lipovetsky and Jean Serroy, who are the organisers of the exhibition, iSOCO has opted to incorporate the social network to share Vimeo videos on the website, which has been developed with the Liferay collaborative environment creation tool. This will enable the multimedia content to be viewed through a single medium, from which the continuous transformation of the project can be easily observed in parallel with the collective creativity of the users.

    It is the first time that the company, which specialises in technological solutions aimed at improving business productivity within the context of the new Network Economy, has placed its knowledge at the disposal of an initiative of this kind. The project, the first phase of which got underway on October 1, seeks the participation of users through the creation of videos on any of the exhibition's seven themes, which will then become part both of the virtual exhibition on the website developed by iSOCO and of the physical exhibition, which will take place at the CCCN from January and go on the road in 2013.

    Improving the CCCB's productivity

    Following this first experience, iSOCO is already collaborating on the next project of the Barcelona Contemporary Culture Centre, whose objective is the technological integration of its entire virtual shop window. The idea consists of bringing together all of the material from their exhibitions, which until now has been dispersed among various websites created individually for each initiative, and to centralise it on a single platform that takes advantage of the synergies between the various exhibitions that are held each year.

    The aim of the CCCB's technological transformation is to improve information management, promote the active participation of users through open collaboration mechanisms and, in short, increase the cultural organisation's productivity by avoiding duplication of information and connecting all of its management elements and internal operations.
