Associated Press gaat zijn video archief digitaliseren
Uit het persbericht:
The Associated Press is working with Prime Focus Technologies (PFT) to digitize its unique video archive, making it available to a whole new audience across digital platforms. AP’s film and tape archive contains around 70,000 hours’ worth of footage, including more than 1.3 million global news and entertainment stories, in 16mm film and videotape, dating back to the beginning of the 20th Century.
The project is part of AP’s multimillion-dollar upgrade to its video business which will see AP switch its entire newsgathering, production and distribution systems to HD to continue to meet the technical, editorial and business needs of its customers in the digital age.
PFT is delivering this project in an unprecedented timescale, creating nearly 4 million new assets in just 18 months, including:
• 3,000 hours of film with an average of 60 news stories per hour – creating a total of 900,000 files
• 29,000 hours of video with an average of 20 news stories per hour – creating a total of 2,900,000 files
