The DAVID project will contribute to


Understanding Damage

How does damage occur in digital video file and digital video tape based systems?

What are the consequences of this damage on the ability to make use of the audiovisual content?


Preventing from Damage

How can effective risk management and quality assurance techniques be built into preservation systems so that the systems

themselves become more robust and resilient?

How can better preservation techniques be incorporated directly into the devices and systems that produce born digital content?


Detecting & Repairing Damage

How can this damage be efficiently monitored and detected?

Accepting that damage will occur, how can content be repaired to enable re-use?

How can all this be done at scale and at speed for large audiovisual collections?


Improving the Quality

How can the technical quality of content be improved beyond the original state to satisfy requirements of new use channels?
