Long-term Audiovisual Preservation: Strategy, Planning & Tools

12 Sep 2011 to 16 Sep 2011
Bry-sur-Marne, France

The audiovisual (AV) record of the 20th century is at risk, with digitisation being a solution, but this created a new problem: the preservation of digital AV content. Managers and technical staff of the AV industry need to be knowledgeable of, and understand how to use, the latest digital preservation technologies, in order to procure the safety of these documents of cultural heritage. Based on the experiences of some of the largest audiovisual and broadcast archives in Europe, this training will give a complete account of the tools and technologies available for the digital preservation of, and access to, audiovisual content, outlining strategies, workflows and architecture planning. In addition, the training provides a range of informative visits to a variety of relevant sites. Participants will include large audiovisual archives, service providers and technology providers. Training locations are Paris and Bry-sur-Marne. Registration is limited to 40 delegates.
