This deliverable describes the demand, the concept and suggests solutions for born robust audio-visual files. A list of tools fostering file robustness is presented as well as the current state of born robust attributes in the standardisation process media formats.
This is a report on the way in which loss and damage to digital AV content occurs for different content types, AV data carriers and preservation systems. Three different loss modes have been identified, and each has been analysed in terms of existing solutions and longterm effects. This report also includes an in-depth treatment of format compatib...
This is the final report from the DAVID project on IT-based tools, strategies and risk management for digital Audio-visual (AV) preservation. Digitised and born-digital AV content presents new challenges for preservation and long-term quality assurance. Archives have rapidly developed strategies for avoiding, mitigating and recovering from digital...
Millions of videocassettes are still stored on shelves, carrying valuable content waiting to be transferred into files before decomposing. Time is running short: not only does tape stock decay, but videotape recorder (VTR) availability becomes critical, and VTR service experts are becoming rare. As it is the final transfer, a technology for highly...

The report contains information on the state of the art in digital damage prevention and repair of audio-visual media. It has been compiled in course of the project definition of DAVID. The DAVID project addresses specific research questions for preservation and restoration of audio-visual media. Details on the continuing project can be found at ww...
For safeguarding and restoring single-carrier sound archives to the platform-independent "eternal" broadcast wave format (BWF) files stores in online robotic archives an automated quality-supervising scalable audio workstation was developed. The advantage of this concept is that the digitized sound signal is stored in the BWF file together with any...

AVEROS creates a scalable, automated video enhancement & restoration service in the cloud. Media enhancement and restoration is currently a labour-intensive manual process. We envision a robust and efficient restoration system, designed as a flexible ‘white-label’ service. Public and in-house media cloud based services can brand the AVEROS offering and combine it with existing media services to ensure the fastest market take-up and to create a high value offering for specific end-user groups.
