"In my own professional path I have evolved through different roles in the BBC’s media archives. FIAT/IFTA always stood by our side. The forum of FIAT/IFTA allowed us to share and learn from colleagues, especially in the domain of Media Asset Management systems. The FiAT/IFTA Media Management Commission, who specializes also in this subject, provided the ideal environment for this. It was an unforgettable experience in 2015, to host more than 120 archivists, media managers, researchers, content creators and vendors from all over the world and discuss about all this in Glasgow.”
- Vicky Plaine, Head of Media Management, BBC Scotland
"Mediaset is a member of FIAT/IFTA since 2011. At the FIAT/IFTA seminar in Glasgow in 2015 I heard a very interesting case study about the media management at Atresmedia in Spain. I got in touch with the speaker and we visited Atresmedia a few months later. We learnt a lot from that visit for our own media management project at Mediaset. FIAT/IFTA brings together the specialists in audiovisual archiving and thus impacted our project in a very positive way."
"Radio Canada is a long standing member of FIAT/IFTA. Our membership allows us to share and to learn in a formal and informal way. In 2015 we presented our own digitization project at the FIAT/IFTA World Conference in Vienna. During that same session we heard about similar projects around the world. These contacts definitely allow us to stay updated about the most recent evolutions in the field."
