Digital Preservation for Video

If content on analog videotape is to survive for the long term, the tapes must be digitized: moved from unstable magnetic media, into the digital realm where--in theory--they can be preserved indefinitely and migrated forward as files rather than physical objects. Digitization, however, means more than simply selecting a destination file format. It requires a series of decisions that will determine the long-term viability of files created--and thus of the valuable video content.

The goal of this workshop is to familiarize attendees who do not have experience in video preservation with the current best practices. Participants will be able to begin addressing the needs of a video collection, prepare for digitization projects, and make decisions about vendors, workflows, and technical issues.

Workshop topics include: basic digital file creation, preservation and access file formats and codecs, software, storage and trusted digital repositories, workflows for digitization, and technical and preservation metadata. Participants will examine case studies of small and large-scale digitization projects in order to understand real-world applications of principles introduced in the workshop.
