Lyra is a front-end to the Music Player Daemon (MPD). Based loosely on the Creative Media Source software, it has the aim of supporting large collections of albums and artists. Other interesting features are the implementation of a local cache of the music library using an SQLite database, increased speed, and flexibility. In addition, Lyra supports integration with the Last.fm service, which includes "Scrobbling" and album cover art.
The Kowalski project aims to provide a data driven, lightweight cross platform audio solution. The target audience is developers of games and similar applications where real time audio plays an important role. The Kowalski engine, which is the runtime component, relies only on host-specific external libraries to pass the final output buffers to the audio hardware. All other processing is done in the engine code. Features include positional audio (distance attenuation, cone attenuation, Doppler shift, binaural panning), real time Ogg Vorbis decoding, a powerful mix bus system, and tools to build, validate, and view Kowalski data.
Vis/Space is a client-server system for visually exploring data structures in 3D virtual space. It allows the placement of various data sources in a three-dimensional environment. Custom search terms can be entered into a query field, or can be navigated to and from an existing object. All objects like images and "text screens" can be moved around. A single click on an image shows the full-resolution version in the foreground. Whole collections of images can be moved. A click to the cube also toggles among several different possible layouts. Data sources include search engines, microblogging, Wikipedia, image/video search, and 4chan.
Lifebox is a fast, lightweight, social photo and video gallery application that is designed to organize large amounts of media. It is able to differentiate between original and modified photos so you can upload your entire library to your server and highlight your favorite photos and videos into albums to share with friends. Lifebox also makes a distinction between albums and rolls, so a single photo or video can be part of multiple albums but only one roll. It extracts data from EXIF tags and XMP sidecars, making it compatible with the data from programs like Adobe Lightroom, Picassa, and iPhoto. Lifebox is social in that people and objects can be tagged, and they will receive an email when this happens. It supports authentication, so you can control who has access to what photo.
Magic Lantern is a multimedia "slide show" creation and presentation tool that helps its users to locate, correlate, and present sequences of graphic images, the modern equivalent of a slide show. It includes a sophisticated editor that supports drag and drop, and similar features that simplify the task of arranging images for presentation. It supports standard multimedia remote controls, has features such as image dissolve, and supports audio file synchronization with images.
Marvin is an extensible image processing framework for Java. It provides features to manipulate images, to manipulate captured video frames, and to process images with multi-threading. Its features can be extended via plug-ins. Plug-ins can be integrated with the graphical user interface, and their plug-in performance can be analyzed. Every image processing algorithm is developed as a plug-in that can be plugged into the MarvinEditor, an image manipulation program that uses plug-ins developed using Marvin, or into third-party applications. Currently there are 55 plug-ins available.
