MiDA | Multimedia Digitization

The files obtained thanks to the digital transformation of old audio-visual supports (films, magnetic tapes), thanks to the optical scanning of printed material or other digital media, they need to be searchable in the digital multimedia archive. Projects in Multimedia Digitalization and Archiving System are divided into different phases:

Media recovery.
The first step may involve any intervention on the quality of the original materials. Where it is necessary, the magnetic media are cleaned, video tapes are tensioned and, if it is possible, the damaged parts of the materials are reconstructed. For this activity we use special hardware and software tools, that have been constantly improved through years of experience.

Classification.
The classification / cataloging stage involves an activity of documentation in order to allow research indexed by keywords. The multimedia files, when properly documented and cataloged, they can create a well organized multimedia archive, that enables a more user friendly fruition with index search capabilities.

Consultation.
The consultation phase is the final stage. it is necessary to facilitate the access to media files archive with descriptive information and keywords. The digitized material, it easily available with features of organization, research and presentation of contents. Typically the fruition, as well as application solutions on site, provides also the possibility of multi-channel access via the web, from different channels.
