The time, effort and cost involved in digitising an audiovisual archive is a major investment. It's quite reasonable to ask for strong and compelling reasons to undertake this transformation. In this tutorial we explore the reasons for making this move from discrete and/or analogue storage, into a digital mass storage system.
This tutorial breaks the reasons down into sections: Preservation, Restoration, Metadata Access and Delivery, and Storage and Archive Management.
