AMIA – Intro to Digital Preservation & Formats
2021-01-27 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST
When a reel of film or videotape breaks, we can examine the reel, diagnose the problem, and repair it. What about when digital files degrade? This webinar will provide an introduction to digital files—their structure, specifications, history, identification, and uses—and will explore potential fixes to “broken” files. Attendees will learn about the organization of data in common audiovisual storage formats, how to recognize those formats, and how to look closer at a file.
