Opening Up the Archives: Part 3- Future Proofing

Opening Up the Archives: Part 3- Future Proofing 

In this episode of the video looking at R&D’s efforts to support the BBC archive we take a look at the need to not just address the challenges of the past, but to also ensure the future resilience of the archive.  As we increasingly move content in the archive off he earlier generations of analogue and discrete digital storage, and into digital mass storage, R&D and colleagues across the BBC are developing strategies to deal with the novel problems that this new approach to storage throws up.  In today’s film we get to see just how complex this future platform for the archive is proving to be.
