The key is designing a preservation repository that the public television system can afford to maintain and use. Our tasks are aimed at designing a model repository based on deciding criteria both for what will go into the repository and how it will function.
- Completing an inventory of our at-risk materials to prepare for selection;
- Reviewing best practices in the field of video archiving;
- Conducting focus groups to help set standards and policies;
- Ingesting sample materials and testing the repository.
In keeping with our commitment to share our progress, we will keep this site current with reports and other documents are they are written.
