The workshop is aimed at all those responsible for audiovisual
collections in archives, museums, libraries. For this introductory
course, no specific technical expertise is required.

In this 5-day workshop, the characteristics of film, video and sound
recordings and the different recording systems and devices will be
reviewed. Specific requirements for their handling and preservation
will be related to the nature and function of different kinds of
audiovisual materials. The workshop will explore the different
transfer and conversion methods, technical requirements in relation
to quality, and long-term management of digital files. Issues will
be approached as management problems, and due attention will be
given to aspects like needs assessment, setting priorities,
planning, budgeting and outsourcing, and project management.
Participants will acquire knowledge of technical issues that will
enable them to make informed decisions about the role of
digitisation in care and management of audiovisual collections. The
speakers will present outlines of issues and practical cases, and a
substantial part of the workshops will be spent on discussions and
group assignments to develop participants' skills in finding their
own solutions.

The workshop will be in English. Participants are expected to have a
working knowledge of English in order to participate in discussions.
