EUROSTARS R&D PROJECT: AV-TREASURE
Bringing new life to archived audio-visual content
So many new movies and documentaries relies on historic imagery. Without proper preservation efforts, much of our cinematic history can be lost forever or stuck buried on a dusty archival shelf.
The AV–Treasure project wants to make the process of finding and using this content much easier. As a result, it will create a valuable resource for the industry, audiences and brands.
Research and Development
Bringing analogue archives into the digital age
With so much content stored in analogue archives, AV-Treasure will activate the treasure trove into the digital age, by giving direct and easy online access to searchable digital archives so Film Heritage Institutions (FHIs) can monetize their assets, – and at the same have them securely preserved for future use. This applies to content of both local, EU and global significance.
Eurostars and the Norwegian and Danish funding bodies are providing financing for this<br>€ 2 Million innovative research and development project.
2 years with completion in March 2022.
