Derivative Objects are needed in DSpace to support dissemination of the original content in alternate formats. Cases where derivative formats are needed:

  • Text extraction for full text search

  • Alternative Image formats for preview tools (JPEG2000, @MIRE Image Zoom Tiles)
  • Alternative Audio / Video formats ( Ex: Flash and MPEG conversion for streaming purposes)
