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.
