BBC Scotland hosted the 7th Media Management Seminar “Changing Sceneries Changing Roles: Setting the Standard in 2nd Generation MAM systems and Metadata” on 21-22 May 2015 at the University of Strathclyde’s brand new Technology and Innovation Centre in Glasgow.
We have collated presentations from the seminar in this MMC publication to give a broader audience the opportunity to take part in the interesting subjects discussed but it will also serve as a reminder for the delegates present in Glasgow.
With thanks to all the authors for their contributions.
MMC Seminar 2015: Changing Sceneries, Changing Roles
FIAT/IFTA’s Media Management Commission cordially invites you to hear from international leaders within the media management community about innovative workflows and timely, practical issues/solutions facing the digital archiving and broadcasting community. As we continue to manage and expose our archives in new markets, accessed by a new user community, and measured by more defined metrics – we look to set the standard with the one connector that binds it all – METADATA. Speakers will provide real-world insights on managing our digital content in new 2nd generation MEDIA ASSET MANAGEMENT systems, in addition to accessing and leveraging legacy content and metadata.
On the 21st and 22nd of May 2015, BBC Scotland will host the international AV Community in Glasgow, Scotland at the Technology and Innovation Centre, University of Strathclyde to hear prominent keynote speakers and representatives from a variety of large audiovisual (broadcast) archives speak on the Main Theme: Setting The Standard in 2nd Generation MAM systems and Metadata.
The first day will be on 2nd generation Media Asset Management systems with Case Studies from Archives who are at different phases in the process of implementing new MAM systems. Some will be in the tender process and others in the design and implementation phase, some archives are at the point of migration to a new MAM and phasing out the old system and finally a few will be fully operational. The sessions will present the organisational and technical challenges experienced, the advantages and disadvantages of new/ old systems, innovative workflows and MAM in the context of production and end user environments.
The second day will focus on various aspects of Metadata – structured/unstructured, impact on search, standards and new emerging technologies. In addition we will examine the impact of social media on broadcast news and production archives – Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, in a multiplatform environment. Over the two days, we will continue to examine the changing roles in archives and need for new skills and training in this fast evolving digital domain.
In short: another international seminar of the MMC of FIAT-IFTA that is highly worth attending, presenting an actual, pertinent theme from both practical and reflective angles. We heartily invite AV-archivists and documentalists, IT and preservation staff, project workers and R & D colleagues as well as archive management, to take part and join us on the 21st and 22nd of May 2015 in the beautiful venue of the Technology and Innovation Centre, University of Strathclyde.
