The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision is one of the largest audiovisual archives in Europe, with a collection comprising of over 700,000 hours of material,

The collection can be accessed via modern catalogue systems and are based on open standards. The Institute is also continually familiarising itself with new developments in contemporary media and culture.

Recently, Sound and Vision launched the iMMix information system, a state of the art Digital Asset Management System, that also incorporates Digital Rights Management and Customer Relations Management functionality. This provides the users (Creative Industry, general public) with a one-stop-shop for reuse, research and exploration for leisure.

In June 2007, the Images for the Future project has been launched. One of the largest digitisation endeavours in Europe to date.

The Images for the Future project aims to realize the following end products:

Preservation, digitization and provision of access to 137.200 hours of video, 22.510 hours of film, 123.900 hours of audio, and 2.9 million photos.
Provision of substantive access (i.e.: contextualization) to the material, especially for educational purposes, but also for the creative industries and the general public.
Provision of access to a core collection of digital film and audio, either devoid of intellectual property rights, or licensed under Creative Commons. Educational purposes will be given primacy.
A distributional infrastructure that provides the broadest possible access to the material that has been opened up.
New services related to the Dutch audiovisual collections for the educational sector, heritage institutions, the creative industries, and society in general.

Sound and Vision is active in the EU research arena:
* eContentPlus: Video Active
* FP6: PrestoSpace, MultiMatch, VIDI-Video, P2P-Fusion
* FP7 LiWA
* MediaPLUS programme: BIRTH
