MUPPITS - Managing media production and post-production workflows
The media production and post-production industries face a real challenge – how to manage a vast range of digital content and the processes that must be applied to turn it from disconnected clips into a coherent media product. IT Innovation provided the solution in the form of management middleware developed over a number of years and applied to industries as diverse as pharmaceuticals, aeronautics and automotive design.
Paul Kafno, Park Pictures
“MUPPITS is a good, reliable management system that will deliver what producers require – fast access to digital content for everyone who needs it and secure archiving of the content.”

SANY - A collaboration between SolData and the IT Innovation Centre
Building new metro systems and urban road and rail links often involves tunnelling under heavily built up areas, where it is vital that any resulting ground displacement is detected as early as possible. IT Innovation has worked with high-performance measurement company SolData to improve the interpretation and decision management supported by ground displacement sensor networks. We developed a generic sensor fusion software framework that works with OGC compliant sensor measurement databases descriptions; SolData are now looking to use this to simplify adding new processing capability to the SolData monitoring system and lower the cost to integration with third party sensor measurement database services.
Gabriel Garcia, Group Director of Research & Development, SolData
"The systematic use of fusion and models in SolData monitoring system would not only allow the users to get richer information, but would also constitute an enhanced early warning system, and ease the analysis of monitoring data. In SolData line of business, fusion would benefit to all its users and stakeholders."
To learn more about how our sensor fusion framework has helped SolData, see this University of Southampton business case study.
Open Source Software
Software which we develop and which is our intellectual property may be licensed on commercial terms or may be released as open source, as a means of promoting adoption of ideas as well as to promote uptake of the software itself.
Our open-source software is continually being developed and improved through deployment by industry and commerce and in collaborative R&D projects. We use OSI licenses chosen to prevent closure of our own work while allowing our partners to use the software in products without restricting the license terms for their components. The software is free. In some cases, limited support is available at no cost on a best-endeavours basis. We undertake support and bespoke development, and provide training and other professional services, on a commercial basis. We can dual-license, and we team with commercial partners for closed source software exploitation where appropriate.
