The Classical Tibetan Knowledge Archive
The world's most comprehensive multimedia digital archive of classical Indian and Tibetan cultural resources
One to One's work with The Orient Foundation for Arts and Culture spans nearly two decades, helping to preserve Classical Tibetan art and make it accessible.
To date we have worked with the Foundation and its team to develop three large-scale websites/digital archives focusing primarily on multilingual interface design and programming. These include Gompa Services, an online community and video streaming service for the major Tibetan monasteries and nunneries of India and Nepal and Teaching Centres worldwide
The Classical Tibetan Knowledge Archive holds 14,500 hours of detailed oral commentary to the classical texts of India, Tibet and the Himalayan region, given by the most accomplished Tibetan lamas, scholars, physicians and artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. It includes edited films from 600 hundred hours of video, and 18,000 photographs of people, places, medicinal plants, monastic activities and ritual arts.
The archive presents material through a unique 'work area' (pictured below) where multiple items of digital material can be viewed and studied in a single screen space.
