PrestoPRIME (keeping audiovisual contents alive)


  • Audiovisual archiving is a complex and multi-disciplinary domain spanning such diverse fields as signal processing, artificial intelligence, semantic interpretation and all digital technologies applied to archiving from preservation to Web publishing. The challenge is to integrate partners of all domains representing the variety of competencies needed. The Project therefore brings together participants including archive owners, research centres from archive institutions, general research centre and universities, and SMEs industrials for development and integration. The main organisers and managers of the project are the core partners composing the Steering Board. The core partners are three audiovisual archive owners including research activities, two research institutions and an industrial as integrator in the project, each of them being responsible of at least one work package. The Core group brings together the major and highly complex audiovisual collections in Europe. The partners have the experience of launching and running large and effective digitisation and delivery programs. The research partners have already proven their ability to find solutions for various problems in the area (e.g. projects PRESTO, GATE, MUMIS, ECHO) and have involvements in several other preservation research projects (SHAMAN, CASPAR). They also bring to the project the results from PrestoSpace.
