The workshop is aimed at all those responsible for audiovisual collections in
archives, museums, libraries. For this introductory course, no specific
technical expertise is required.
In this 5-day workshop, the characteristics of film, video and sound recordings
and the different recording systems and devices will be reviewed. Specific
requirements for their handling and preservation will be related to the nature
and function of different kinds of audiovisual materials. The workshop will
explore the different transfer and conversion methods, technical requirements
in relation to quality, and long-term management of digital files. Issues will
be approached as management problems, and due attention will be given to
aspects like needs assessment, setting priorities, planning, budgeting and
outsourcing, and project management. Participants will acquire knowledge of
technical issues that will enable them to make informed decisions about the
role of digitisation in care and management of audiovisual collections. The
speakers will present outlines of issues and practical cases, and a substantial
part of the workshops will be spent on discussions and group assignments to
develop participants' skills in finding their own solutions.
The workshop will be in English. Participants are expected to have a working
knowledge of English in order to participate in discussions.
