The evolution of content distribution for entertainment and infotainment is urging better pricing and value-for-money for industry products and services. Content providers, aggregators and distributors constantly need to adopt innovative means for reducing costs and to satisfy the user needs. AXMEDIS Framework aims at providing technical solutions and tools for automating content production, formatting, protection and distribution. The solution described in the paper was designed as a distributed environment based on the GRID technology and provides an efficient management of content production/finalization as well as the dynamic service discovery and composition, distributed resource management and adaptive media delivery. AXMEDIS is a large IST FP6 Integrated Project of Research and Development, in which a set of enabling technologies are developed to cope with the above mentioned problems.
