Preservation of AV heritage

The preservation of audiovisual heritage can be done in various ways.
1) Preventive preservation, which consists in keeping contents in their original media, as it stands.
2) Curative preservation, which consists in digitising material under the best possible conditions.
As Digital technology progresses, this second method appears now as the only legitimate way to preserve audiovisual heritage.

The preservation of audiovisual heritage or audiovisual content is made of 3 main domains:

  • first, our digitization services allow to transfer the media into standardized files whatever the current physical carriers are (magnetic or optical)/(cassette, tape, disc or film). The job can be done in vectracom premises or at the archives location thanks to our mobile systems and teams. In both cases, there’s no compromise with the quality. We are ISO 9001 certified and apply processes that have been designed and improved over many years.

  • Then, after digitization, the media must be preserved to remain available and readable. Our Digital Preservation Services allow you to preserve your valuable assets in a readable  format. These assets are also easy to access by who has the rights.

  • Finally, to allow you to take advantage of the value of your asset, we propose metadata enhancement services to create or improve the set of each element to make it easy to find  and use.
