Managing Media Assets
  • What content do you have?
  • Where is it?
  • What format is it in?
  • What condition is it in?
  • Who holds rights on it?
consistent management of all asset formats is the key
Consistent Management of All Asset Formats is the Key…
  • An organization’s assets are highly valuable – whether they are physical analogue material, digitised electronic materials, or future technologies/formats that go beyond the digital realm.
  • Most collections will contain both analogue and digital material for many years to come.
  • Need to maintain consistent intellectual information about each asset, regardless of its physical manifestation.

Realising Media Asset Value

Re-using, re-purposing and re-selling your content effectively and efficiently implies:

  • All assets catalogued in a single system (or one that provides a single-system view)
  • Analogue assets physically managed and conversion to digital formats automated
  • Digital assets available for on-line viewing and editing

Mass-Digitisation Challenges
  • Multiple analogue formats
  • Reuse of existing metadata
  • Metadata stored in database vs. metadata stored directly in digital file
  • Loss of analogue material during digitisation process
  • Automation of the whole process whether ad hoc or batch
