Spectrum - Decentralised Digital Assets Catalogue

About Us

Spectrum is an exploratory project that aims at testing how Blockchain based technologies can simplify digital creative assets administration.

Spectrum is a D-DAC (Decentralised Digital Assets Catalogue) that explores sustainable alternatives for resolving digital media industry complexities at the various stage of digital goods life cycle: creation, production, distribution and archiving.

Target audience: Digital creatives (Music, Video, Picture, Gaming, Computer Assisted Design, digital fabrication), creative content production companies, aggregators and distributing agents.


Consolidate digital creative partners and upgrade Spectrum laboratory to a massive proof-of-concept of a D-DAC in relevant operational use-cases, large data acquisition and user feedback to feed-up:

  • Business Modelisation: actors, needs, and capacities, as upgraded specifications for the D-DAC
  • Business Intelligence: tools for managing the D-DAC, from history to statistics – Blockchain explorer for business-suited data mining
  • D-DAC management: define a sustainable model for the D-DAC as an operational, interoperable, decentralised, and community-based digital asset registry.

What we do

We propose a service of exploring how Blockchain can be relevant to Creative Businesses - from proof-of-paternity on creation up to digital creative asset valorization, as well as production process in itself.

  • Aggregation of actors from different digital creative ecosystem: institutional, public and private entities as well as artists and creators, in music, photo, video, gaming, computer assisted manufacturing... industries.
  • Task force aligning business specifications and technological opportunities in corresponding digital environments.
  • Elaboration of new models for digital asset valorization.
  • Study of the relevance of Blockchain as a trusted and efficient tool for sharing data and value in each peculiar context.
  • If interest confirmed: definition, development and analysis of Blockchain-based proof-of-concepts, and scaling-up if applicable.

We are looking for field partners: any actor involved in Creative Business, from solo creator to major company, to explore together the premise of Blockchain and determine where, and how, it can be used as a true data and value management tool in a worldwide context.

Our network of experts make all together a suited environment for modelizing future business ecosystems, defining operational specifications for model testing, and execute related studies and development.
