Audiovisual Archives in Latin America: Access, Value and Preservation
The invention of the television brought excitement to the daily lives of people around the world. Broadcasting of images in drama and news brought about mass communications. The internet with its networks and multiple screens enabled the definitive distribution and integration of audiovisual content to our daily lives. In the age of audiovisual information, we have become both consumers and producers of content. But what is the state of the records which preserve the audiovisual historical memory of TV along time?
How are TV productions and shows in Brazil and Latin America preserved to maintain a connection with the new generations? How can such a rich historical resource be made available to new audiences to view, study or incorporate into new productions?
The International Federation of Television Archives FIAT/IFTA, in a partnership with TV Cultura, invite you to participate in their free Regional Online Seminar “Audiovisual Archives in Latin America: Access, Value and Preservation,” on September 29 and 30.
Watch, participate and contribute in our presentations and panels with discussions about the challenges and potential solutions to save images from obsolescence and deterioration of their magnetic media, to connect the stages of information processing to digital technologies and to expand access to all collections. In the year that Brazilian TV turns 70, we are given the opportunity to celebrate the value of audiovisual files and their contents.
FIAT/IFTA and TV Cultura bring professionals from Europe, Brazil and Latin America together for an exchange of knowledge and experiences acquired in the management of an audiovisual archive in the age of digital technologies.
