Future-proof AV content for education and research

6 Nov 2014 to 7 Nov 2014
Venice, Italy

As the Presto4U project comes to an end (Dec 2014) we are bringing universities and research institutions together to offer them some free training in audiovisual digital preservation. Organised by the Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College London in collaboration with the University of Venice IUAV and Italian broadcaster RAI, ‘Future-proof AV content for education and research’ will take place in Venice (Italy) over 2 half days (6-7 November 2014). This workshop will offer a good overview of the methods and best practices for AV preservation including digitisation, choice of master formats, use of standards, metadata and improving collections discoverability. Participants will also gain a broader knowledge of EU copyright law exceptions (e.g. orphan works) and learn how to build business justification through uses cases and workflow analysis. Please visit the event page for a detailed programme. Please note that attendance is free, but registration is required (closing on Monday 27th October).
