This webinar recording is an introduction to expressing digital preservation requirements in the context of audiovisual collections, with a special emphasis on the approach followed by the Presto4U project. The video starts with the basics on what the requirements are, how they are created and for which purposes they serve. The recording then discusses how standards can play a key role in the expression of requirements for digital preservation and exemplifies the concept by showing how to use three standards: the OAIS reference model, the Ontology for Media Resources and the ISO/IEC 25010 System and Software Quality Requirments and Evaluation SQuaRE – System and Software Quality.

The video is aimed at productions and post-production companies with preserved collections and an explicit need of exchanging assets with other companies in business-to-business solutions.
