Online Archives - the Pressure of Metadata

Document Thumbnail

For an economic realisation of future online archives working in a global network structure the right course shall be set. Therefore already during the digitisation and capturing process of single sound carrier archives the registration of relevant metadata attention shall be paid besides the re-recording of sound and video data. The description of sound and video content, their technical quality, cue sheet and status information are also important as an unique material identifier for a world-wide unique identification of source material. In addition the continuous gathering of metadata shall accompany the audio and video material on the road. A platform independent container such as the BWF file is used to gather all the helpful information on the way.
