DAVID D6.6 Dissemination & Standardisation 3

This document reports on dissemination and standardisation activities carried out by the DAVID project partners during the entire project runtime.

Main effort within the last six project month was dedicated to the extension of the project web-site (http://www.david-preservation.eu), the creation of several public deliverables and the presentation of DAVID goals and results at major industry and preservation community events. Deliverables and presentations (if possible) are available from the project web-site. DAVID contributed very actively to the standardisation activities EBU QC, EBU/AMWA FIMS QA as well as MPEG preservation related activity MP-AF.

DAVID D6.4 Dissemination & Standardisation 2

This document reports on dissemination and standardisation activities carried out by the DAVID project partners during year 1 and 2 and planned within the remaining 6 month of the project. Main effort was dedicated to the extension of the project web-site (http://www.david-preservation.eu), the creation of several public deliverables and the presentation of DAVID goals and results at major industry and preservation community events. Deliverables and presentations (if possible) are available from the project web-site.

DAVID D3.3 Final IT Strategies & Risk Framework

This is the final report from the DAVID project on IT-based tools, strategies and risk management for digital Audio-Visual (AV) preservation. Digitised and born-digital AV content presents new challenges for preservation and long-term quality assurance. Archives have rapidly developed strategies for avoiding, mitigating and recovering from digital AV loss using IT-based systems. The problems affecting digital AV content and the strategies against AV loss adopted by INA and ORF are discussed in this report. A risk-based framework based on the essential properties of AV assets and documented preservation metadata is required to determine how best to minimise the risk of digital damage. This report presents a conceptual risk management framework responding to the requirements of archive risk management, and presents a set of tools developed by the DAVID partners. This report also contains a specific use case of a real-life MXF file repair process at ORF, showing how risk modelling and simulation can be used in practice.

DAVID D2.2 Analysis of Loss Modes in Preservation Systems

This is a report on the way in which loss and damage to digital AV content occurs for different content types, AV data carriers and preservation systems. Three different loss modes have been identified, and each has been analysed in terms of existing solutions and long-term effects. This report also includes an in-depth treatment of format compatibility (interoperability issues), format resilience to carrier degradation and format resilience to corruption.

DAVID D6.2 Dissemination&Standardisation

This document reports on dissemination and standardisation activities carried out by the DAVID project partners during the first year and planned within the second year. Main effort was dedicated to the set-up of the project web-site (http://www.david-preservation.eu), the creation of several public deliverables and the presentation of DAVID goals and first results. Deliverables and presentations (if possible) are available from the project web-site. DAVID actively contributed to the standardisation activities EBU QC, EBU/AMWA FIMS QA as well as MPEG preservation related activity MP-AF

DAVID D3.1 Initial Strategies and Risk Framework

Digitised and born-digital AV content presents new challenges for preservation and long-term quality assurance. Archives have rapidly developed strategies for avoiding, mitigating and recovering from digital AV loss using IT-based systems. A risk-based framework based on the essential properties of AV assets and documented preservation metadata is required to determine how best to minimise the risk of digital damage.

DAVID D2.1 Data Damage and its Consequences on Usability

David Deliverable D2.1 reports on digital audiovisual data damage and its consequences on usability. It reports, from inquiries targeted at broadcasters and TV archives, on collected evidence of damage, on the consequences of loss events in terms of the impact on visual and audible properties of the content. Main potential sources of damage are identified depending on their origin analogue, digital, and system-originated problems.

Commonly used mitigation procedures are presented. It is stated in the conclusion that complex media asset management systems appear to be more and more vulnerable to risks due to hidden dependencies and interoperability problems, often revealed on the occasion of a migration or a component update.

DAVID-State of the Art Report on Damage Prevention and Repair of Digital AV Media

This report contains information on the state of the art in digital damage prevention and repair of audio-visual media. It has been compiled in course of the project definition of DAVID. The DAVID project addresses specific research questions for preservation and restoration of audio-visual media.

This report addresses the state of the art of specific topics in the four areas:

  • Understanding how damage occurs in IT based storage systems and what impact loss has on the usability of digital AV content
  • Risk management for long-term quality assurance and interoperable preservation metadata for digital AV content
  • Scalable tools for content based damage detection (digital dropouts), repair (digital dropouts and digital sensor noise) and quality improvement (resolution) of digital AV objects
  • Standardised service-oriented interfaces (FIMS) for integrating project results applied to audiovisual collections
