In the past 22 months, FIAT/IFTA has been informed that several European television archives – members and non-members of FIAT/IFTA – have received proposals to have certain video cassette formats from their archives digitised / migrated by a third party. It was emphasized that this digitisation would be free of charge.
Several members have asked the FIAT/IFTA Preservation and Migration Commission to advise on such proposal. In recent months, members of the Commission have studied the documents in which the provider sets out the proposals and developed an advice in response. This elaborate advice can be requested from FIAT/IFTA via an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
