Ampex KCA umatic tape Metadata

Often our customers have very different needs. For archives, libraries, museums and learning institutions, creating accurate and project specific metadata is a crucial part of establishing a successful digital preservation repository.

Metadata is becoming increasingly important for those working in professional media production as well.

Metadata helps us to describe digital resources in a structured way so they can be shared with other people, organisations and between operating systems.

  • We areĀ able to support organisations who need to create metadata as part of their digitisation project.
  • We are able to digitise to, use and edit metadata rich digital files such as Broadcast WAV (BWAV) and the open source MKV container often used with the FFV1 lossless video codec.

As each project is unique and individual, we can adapt our service to correspond with the metadata framework best suited to deliver your collection.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you want to discuss your project with us.
