Asia-Pacific Institute for Broadcasting Development (AIBD) in collaboration with the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU) organised a one-day regional workshop on Management and Digitisation of Audio-Video Archives. The participants were from radio and television organisations, with experience in archiving of audio and video contents. The workshop was held on 29 February 2016 prior to the ABU Digital Broadcast Symposium in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
AIBD Director Chang Jin welcomed all participants and said audio-visual contents are one of the most important assets to any broadcaster. Saving this precious data he said could mean a lot of financial saving. He then highlighted the main difficulties faced by the broadcasters to preserve their audio-video contents.
The workshop was divided into four sessions, which were preservation techniques and management of existing archives, digital solution for prevention and modern archiving systems, metadata and management of digital archives and case studies sharing experiences from broadcasters.
