One New Thing: Initiatives to preserve audiovisual heritage.
Ariadne magazine recently published an article Can We Save Our Audio-visual Heritage? which discusses a project called PrestoSpace. This European project is a collaborative effort to preserve archival material in audiovisual formats as the technology that millions of hours of material is stored on gradually becomes aged, damaged and obsolete. From the Ariadne article: “The main objective is to develop systems that will permit quick, efficient and economically accessible preservation of analogue media.”
It sounds like the task will be quite challenging, but fascinating for those who are involved – and definitely necessary! (I’m still worried about using CDs after yesterday’s post.) ;)
