Description/Abstract

With the advent of end-to-end tapeless production and distribution, the whole concept of what it means to archive audiovisual content is being challenged. The traditional role of the archive as a repository for material after broadcast is changing because of digital file-based technologies and high speed networking. Rather than being at the end of the production chain, the archive is becoming an integral part of the production process and as a result is being absorbed into wider digital storage environments, including those that are distributed or used across organisational boundaries. This paper presents some of the work done in the UK AVATAR-m project on service-oriented approaches to digital permanence and preservation of audiovisual content. Our specific focus is how to specify and then govern federated storage services in a way that ensures the long term safety, security and accessibility of audiovisual assets in a managed and cost effective way.
