As a proof of concept and illustrating some of the principles advocated within the DINA (Data Information system of NAtural History Collections) consortium for developing components that fits into the DINA Collections system, a media server is demonstrated as an example outcome of the DINA distributed development efforts.

The media server allows for storage, manipulation and archiving of multimedia assets such as; images, video files, sound files and other binary assets. The MediaServer exposes a web API based on the REST architectural style, that is largely compliant with the recommendations suggested by the Systems Engineering Task Force within the DINA collaboration. Source code is available on github.
