Across the various options in Digital Asset Management Systems, there is great inconsistency in terms of their ability to faithfully preserve and provide access for A/V content. How are cultural heritage institutions grappling with these complexities and forging their own path with the systems they have in place? For this session we will hear from digital preservationists at three different institutions. Over the past year, LACMA has expanded its configuration of ResourceSpace (ODIN) to support A/V content as well as improving upon its technical and provenance metadata extraction and management to assist in obsolescence monitoring and preservation planning for its digital collections. However, this wasn’t without a high degree of trial and error, a particularly complex situation given that they are locally hosted and must share responsibilities between LACMA staff and the software developers. The Getty Research Institute has been using Rosetta to manage both preservation and access workflows for its audio-visual collection items. They will address some of the challenges faced in serving the diverse needs of their user base, the changing nature of web standards and video players, as well as the complexity of managing a service for a large institution with a development company that is across the globe. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Digital Management Services platform brings together collections management, digital asset management, and digital preservation workflows into a single, centralized platform. They will provide an overview of the platform's architecture, which combines Collections Management, Digital Asset Management, and Media Asset Management systems. They will highlight the benefits and challenges of designing automated workflows for preservation and access that accommodate a wide range of both audiovisual and still image assets.
