Nabu – the PARADISEC catalog

Nabu is a digital media item management system that provides a catalog of audio and video items, metadata for these items, and information about the workflow status of the items.

‘Nabu’ is a word in the South Efate language for ‘road’, as a connector of various locations.

PARADISEC developed the Open Source system ‘Nabu’ in 2012 with funding from the Australian Research Council LIEF (Linkage Infrastructure Equipment and Facilities) scheme (LE11000142).
