  • PLANNING PRESERVATION OF DIGITAL BEYOND AUDIOVISUAL DIGITIZATION COLLECTIONS Kara Van Malssen AMERICAN ARCHIVE / The Real Thing Broadway Video Digital Media kvanmalssen@broadwayvideo.com 17 November 2010

  • a lot more born- digital! Digital Universe 2010 = 1.2 zetabytes (1 billion terabytes)
  • ? Why is preserving digital audiovisual content CHALLENGING
  • Static Media Viewed with the naked eye Utilized without additional components Very long useful life if stored properly Photo from the Library of Congress via Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/library_of_congress/3738806589/
  • Photo by Martin Deutsch via Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/teflon/2352818254/ Magnetic Media Dependent on machines to view and utilize Media are fragile Industry changes results in format obsolescence
  • Digital Media Not tangible Even more dependencies More frequent obsolescence of various components Playback requirements not obvious More content than ever before
  • VIDEO: no standard format for production or archiving
  • many LARGE files
  • Analog formats cannot wait!
  • “There is simply not enough equipment to play them all back.” “the small population of decks make it mathematically improbable that a great deal of this work can ever be transferred - there is simply not enough equipment to do it - at any price.” “We have lost the chance to save it all - now we must move quickly to identify and save what is critical.”   -Jim Lindner, “End of Quad and One Inch” Discussion on AMIA-L, 21 May 2009

  • Value creation for today’s users

  • Bit Rot
  • Software Obsolescence + Upgrades Photo by damclean via Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/damclean/2143598772/
  • Hardware Obsolescence
  • Photo by huangjiahui via Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/huangjiahui/3179858408/ Processor Obsolescence
  • Storage Media Obsolescence Photo by Ian-S via Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/ian-s/2785762687/
  • Photo by massdistraction via Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/sharynmorrow/3718174646 Storage Media Failure
  • “ Despite storing CD-Rs recorded in ideal conditions, tech site TechARP unboxed 300 CDs recorded between 7 to 9 years ago, and found that they have a failure rate approaching 10 percent for the first 173 discs--the restoration is still on-going. Paul Mah, “The Problem of Bit Rot Revisited.” FierceCIO: Tech Watch, 21 July 2009 ” http://www.fiercecio.com/techwatch/story/problem-cd-bit-rot-revisited/2009-07-21? utm_medium=nl&utm_source=internal
  • Lack of METADATA “If a piece of program material is not correctly placed and identified on a digital system, it might as well not be there - no one will be able to find it or even know it exists.” Cox, Tadic, Mulder. Descriptive Metadata for Television. Focal Press, 2006. p63.

  • 1. BIT PRESERVATION Sustaining the 0s and 1s, or ensuring that the video, audio, and ancillary files remain intact over time with no loss or corruption of bits Photo by adrenalin via Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/adrenalin/4250667/
  • 2. ACCESIBILITY AND USABILITY OF CONTENT Ensuring that video, audio, and ancillary files can be found, retrieved, interpreted, played back, and delivered to the appropriate users. Photo by Sunshine Junior via Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/sunshinetoday168/1323387457
  • 3. ORGANIZATIONAL INFRASTRUCTURE An entity (repository) explicitly responsible for keeping the content alive and accessible. Photo by stefan1024 via Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/stefan1024/3682770758
  • “The archive accomplishes [preservation and access] by taking ownership of the records, ensuring that they are understandable to the accessing community, and managing them so as to preserve their information content and authenticity.” - OAIS Authenticity Requirements B6.10 Repository enables the dissemination of authentic copies of the original or objects traceable to originals. - Trustworthy Repositories Audit and Certification “Authentication, or the demonstration of authenticity...includes both technical and procedural aspects. Technical approaches may include the maintenance of detailed documentation of digital provenance (the history of the object), the preservation of a version of the object that is, bit-wise, identical to the content as submitted” - PREMIS
  • STRATEGIES
  • efficiency costs authenticity
  • Refer to the ISO standard OAIS (Open Archival Information System) Reference Model PRESERVATION PLANNING DESCRIPTIVE DESCRIPTIVE INFO INFO P DATA C R MANAGEMENT queries O O N D result sets S U SIP INGEST ACCESS orders U C ARCHIVAL M E E STORAGE DIP R R AIP AIP ADMINISTRATION MANAGEMENT
  • SIP INGEST Brings content into the repository
  • INGEST STRATEGY Establish Submission Information Package (SIP) requirements essence + metadata
  • Limit formats accepted use LOC sustainability criteria http://www.digitalpreservation.gov/formats/
  • Descriptive Technical Digital Provenance Rights
  • ARCHIVAL AIP STORAGE Manages storage & backups, integrity, security
  • ARCHIVAL STORAGE STRATEGY Establish AIP requirements using metadata standards METS fileSec SD HD Broadcast amdSec Broadcast Master Master (mov/data) (mov/aiff/ m2v) dmdSec techMD rightsMD Production Master (mxf) structMap
  • by oosp via Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/mhl20/4197661773/ ARCHIVAL STORAGE STRATEGY Regularly audit files, repair corrupt files with backups
  • Results of data corruption, from “Digital Preservation Strategies for AV Content” M. Addis, R. Wright, R. Weerakkody (IBC 2010)
  • DESCRIPTIVE INFO DATA MANAGEMENT Administers database about repository holdings
  • DATA MANAGEMENT STRATEGY Where is the content? Identification & Organization What is the content? Descriptive Metadata Who made it? Descriptive Metadata Can I use it? Rights Metadata How can I display it properly? Technical & Structural Metadata How can I preserve it? Preservation Metadata Where did it come from? Source Metadata Create, update, manage, and maintain good metadata throughout the life cycle of the digital object by cirox via flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/cirox/2217372790/
  • DIP ACCESS Facilitates requests to archival storage and data management, generates Dissemination Information Packages, delivers information in the appropriate format to users.

  • ADMINISTRATION Oversees the operation of the system
  • ADMINISTRATION STRATEGY Self Assessment or Certification on Digital Object Management, Technological Infrastructure, and Governance & Organizational Viability
  • Implementation of the repository depends on the services to be provided to the producer/customer
