PrestoSpace - Digital Preservation of audio/visual material

PrestoSpace (http://www.prestospace.org/project/index.en.html) is an EU project which aims to enable any European archive owner, from small collections to the largest, to manage an autonomous and realistic patrimonial policy, including preservation and exploitation of digital assets, in order to bring together industry, research institutes and stakeholders at European level to provide products and services for bringing effective automated preservation and access to Europe’s diverse audiovisual collections.

The outcome of the project is "Digital Preservation of audio/visual material", a website for archive owners, academics and the public alike, which provides a first point-of-call for information on the migration and digital preservation of audio/visual works. The site is a repository of the information and experience gained in the PrestoSpace project. You can find information ranging from the tutorial to the academic on planning and executing a digital preservation project and the technologies and processes involved. You will also find training videos, management tools and links to online resources and events in the field of digital preservation.
