25-11-2004 (Almaty)
Some 20 experts from national audiovisual archives, main broadcasting organizations and national committees of UNESCO’s Memory of the World Programme in Central Asia are expected for a two-day training workshop on digital preservation of audiovisual archives in Almaty, Kazakhstan, on 29 and 30 November 2004.
How to start the process of digital migration in broadcasting organizations and how to enhance cooperation with state archival institutions in the field of audiovisual heritage are the main questions addressed by the workshop.

Its agenda includes a review of the current situation in the field of preservation and access in archives and broadcasting organizations and a presentation of methods of migration of digital documents on the basis of the Memory of the World Guidelines on digital migration.

"The main focus of the seminar will be on the use of ICTs, including electronic cataloging and digital libraries, for facilitating access to audio data”, says Sergey Karpov from the UNESCO Office in Almaty. “We also hope that the participants formulate recommendations on starting the process of digital migration of traditional audiovisual materials”.

The workshop is being organized by the UNESCO Office in Almaty in collaboration with the Central State Archive of Audiovisual and Photo Documents of the Republic of Kazakhstan as part of UNESCO’s support for digital migration of content in audiovisual archives including archives of public service broadcasters.
