Digital media consumption and today’s publishing technologies are all playing their part in fuelling the appetite of professionals and consumers alike to gain access to the wealth of content of all genres held within archives. Audiovisual archives represent significant historic, cultural and educational resources.
Content and metadata management is becoming increasingly complex as the transition from physical analogue formats, to a plethora of digital formats, becomes a necessity to fulfil the access requirements. The ability to manage both analogue and digital formats and their metadata in a consistent and cohesive manner creates the efficiencies required in today’s economic climate.
Mediaflex-UMS has been implemented into some of the most prestigious collections around the world. It uses workflow concepts to underpin all major archival processes to manage, preserve and deliver digital content while ensuring that the whereabouts of analogue content and artefacts are also strictly tracked and maintained.
