Joint Technical Symposium 2016
– Sustainable Audiovisual Collections Through Collaboration –
7th – 9th March, 2016, Singapore
The Joint Technical Symposium (JTS) explores the technical issues affecting the long term survival and accessibility of audiovisual collections.
Since the last JTS in 2010 the audiovisual archiving world has seen many dramatic changes and advancements in the technologies that enable preservation. The rate and magnitude of these changes requires a collaborative approach to enable all archives to make sense of the best way to keep collections alive for future generations.
The theme of JTS 2016 “Sustainable Audiovisual Collections Through Collaboration” addresses this dynamic landscape. The papers presented at JTS 2016 will cover the ongoing technological viability of audiovisual collections both as individual items and holistically, as well as every aspect of audiovisual media preservation and access such as conservation and restoration, harvesting and accessing collection information – including metadata and intellectual property.
JTS 2016 is organised under the auspices of UNESCO affiliate the Co-ordinating Council of Audiovisual Archives Associations (CCAAA) and its members’ Technical Committees, and is hosted by the South East Asia-Pacific Audio Visual Archive Association (SEAPAVAA) and the National Archives of Singapore (NAS). It is held at the Cinematheque, National Museum of Singapore (NMS).
