  • The Education Image Gallery was designed and has been hosted by EDINA since 2003. JISC selected EDINA to host the service in 2003 and the images in the service are from 3 Getty collections. Photodisc: Photodisc was a publisher of royalty free, high-quality, stock images, which they sent to customers on cd-rom. When acquired by Getty in 1998, Photodisc’s library had around 60,000 images. Hulton Archive: Picture Post was a prominent photojournalistic magazine published in Britain between the late 30s and late 50s.The owner, Sir Edward Hulton, set up the photographic archive of the magazine, the Hulton Archive. The collection is one of the largest privately owned stills photography collections in the world, covering events, people and places from the last two centuries. It consists of approximately 40 million images, including vintage prints by photographers such as Man Ray, Alfred Eisenstadt and Robert Capa. It was bought by the BBC in 1958, changed hands again then Getty Images acquired it in 1996. Getty Images News Service background: Up-to-the-minute images of the latest news, sport and entertainment events as they unfold around the world. Getty’s editorial team has complete autonomy and independence from its business operations. Only the editorial staff have control over the photojournalism process - from assignment to delivery. At no time do Getty permit non-editorial individuals or groups to have influence over the editorial coverage or workflow. The editorial coverage is free of obligation and has no conflict of interest in its creation or production process.

  • In 2002 EDINA was selected by JISC to host and deliver ten collections of films and video (together with associated materials) that initially made up the Education Media Online service (name changed to FSOL in September 2006). There are c urrently 16 collections available within the service. The collections of film and video were cleared and digitised through the JISC's Managing Agent and Advisory Service (MAAS). The Managing Agent and Advisory Service (MAAS, http://www.bufvc.ac.uk/maas/) was a partnership service of the British Universities Film & Video Council (http://www.bufvc.ac.uk/) and the Open University (http://www.open.ac.uk/). Established by JISC in 2000, wound-up in 2005. MAAS selected the collections after discussion with academicsthen acquired the rights, digitised and catalogued them. Metadata based on Dublin Core standard. In addition, each film and segment is given an ISAN (International Standard AV Number). The ISAN (International Standard Audiovisual Number) is a voluntary numbering system for the identification of audiovisual works . It provides a unique, internationally recognized and permanent reference number for each audiovisual work registered in the ISAN system. The ISAN identifies works, not publications or broadcasts. The ISAN remains the same for an audiovisual work regardless of the various formats in which the work is distributed (e.g. DVD, video recording) or the uses to which it is put. You can get more info. at www.isan.org
  • NewsFilm Online is a JISC -funded service comprising a selection of news stories, videos and programme scripts from the ITN/Reuters archives – 60,000 stories, 25,000 scripts, 3,000 hours of video footage.. The BUFVC has digitised the footage, at the highest quality that was practical within the timeframe of the project, to ‘future-proof’ the material. Digitised at 8megabits per second, which is commercial DVD quality. EDINA designed the interface and hosts the service. NFO differs from the other services as it is open to anyone to search and browse. Only subscribing institutions can play videos within the service and download videos and programme scripts.
  • Collections description The content has been drawn from the archives of ITN (1955 to date) and Reuters (1986 to date). The content is categorised under 19 collections within the service. Some of the collections names reflect actual product names, e.g. Gaumont British and Gaumont Graphic were cinema newsreels that ran between 1910 - 1959. Other names are used to separate a wide ranging resource into discrete slices e.g. you ‘ll find ITN Reports, ITN Specials, ITV News etc. Content selection ENTIRE surviving Gaumont British and Gaumont Graphic have been digitised, covering 40 years. The 3000 hours of content represents a very small proportion of the 140,00 hours within the ITN archive. Selection policy was developed by the project steering group. Aim of selection was to reflect user needs across FE & HE. Choices were mainly subject driven, aimed to cover a wide range of academic disciplines. Other considerations: Iconic events – prominent stories from each decade were selected. Longitudinal slices of ITN’s coverage. Selected at frequency if 1 week per quarter at 5 yearly intervals from 1956-2006. First full week per quarter was chosen and every bulletin broadcast in that week was selected, thus newscasters sign offs and intros were also digitised. Sampling covered 11 specific years. Copyright ownership issues - big consideration was whether ITN or Reuters owned the copyright. Often footage in news bulletins is supplied by other broadcasters or news agencies, and only made available for a short period, then a new copyright agreement is negotiated. NFO could not pay for rights to 3 rd party material, so stories with large amounts of 3 rd party material were excluded. In some cases, if small amounts of 3 rd party material were included in major events coverage which NFO did not want to exclude, some masking of video or soundtracks was applied to protect JISC from copyright claims. There are some audio only materials in there, e.g. reports received via satellite and broadcast over a still picture. Examples include some reports received during the Falklands war. May be mute footage, where the newscaster accompanied the script with a commentary – footage like this from pre-1979 will usually be accompanied by a digitised script with the commentary. Reuters is an international news agency, lots of global stories, often with a regional flavour. Too time consuming to identify global stories, decided that the Reuters material selection should be similar to ITN, i.e. UK focussed. NFO had an initial outline plan for encoding, as follows: Source Date range Hours Segments Channel 4 News and News at Ten (Av. 10 mins per day) 1982–Present 650 29,000 News at Ten (Av. 10 mins per day) 1968–1982 400 incl. above ITN News Reports (Av. 10 mins per day) 1955–1967 400 incl. above Roving Report (News documentary series) 1957–1967 100 2,000 Gaumont Newsreels (bi-weekly, 9 mins per issue) 1920–1959 600 12,000 Reuters/Visnews News Agency Material 1950–Present 225 4,000 Unreleased Footage (library footage, specials etc) 1910–Present 125 3,000 Additional material selected by request from FE/HE 1898–Present 500 10,000

  • The images are copyright cleared provided you stick within the T&C of the service. The images are in screen resolution format so some may not scale up or print well. No watermark but the terms of use state that you add an acknowledgement – we’ll look at the format of that later.
  • The integrity of the materials must be maintained at all times. No part or parts of the materials in this collection may be used in a context which misrepresents the subject portrayed in the materials. No editing or manipulation of the images contained in this Amber Film Collection is permitted.
