Pixus - JISC Image Portal Project

Pixus was a joint project with the Scottish Cultural Resources Access Network financed by JISC (Higher Education's Joint Information Systems Committee). The project created and developed an advanced portal system delivering object level access to a series of independent image services for higher education, while also meeting a range of standards and requirements for interoperability. System Simulation's experience in the development of standards and metadata and the powerful searching capabilities of its technology provided a sound basis for responding to the demanding requirements of this project. Equally important was the design input that ensured that the results from different datasets were integrated into a homogeneous display conforming to the best principles of 'inclusive design' and reflecting the overall look and feel of the portal.
