Vienna, Austria (November 3, 2009)–NOA Audio Solutions will join Fonoteca Nacional of Mexico City for a conference entitled “Safeguarding Our Sound and Audiovisual Heritage: A World Challenge.”
On hand will be international experts in the field of audiovisual archiving and preservation, sharing their insights about the latest developments in the field. Among those participating will be authorities from the industry’s associations, including the International Association of Sound and Audiovisual Archives, the International Federation of Television Archives, and the International Federation of Film Archives.
Presenters also include NOA managing partner Jean-Christophe Kummer, who will discuss how to organize workflows within a digital archive, using as examples the Sveriges Radio Frvaltnings (SRF) archive, Fonoteca Nacional de Mexico, and Radiotelevizija Slovenija (RTV). All of these organizations rely on the NOA mediARC solution to surmount the challenges associated with cataloging and managing storage, and with the transfer and transcoding of media files.
The first of its kind in Latin America, the Fonoteca Nacional is dedicated to the preservation of Mexico’s national sound heritage. The archive, which opened in December 2008, is located in the former house of Mexican poet Octavio Paz in the neighborhood that was once home to Leon Trotsky, Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera.
“Safeguarding Our Sound and Audiovisual Heritage: A World Challenge” is slated to take place Monday, November 9, through Thursday, November 13, at the Fonoteca Nacional in Mexico City. The Fonoteca Nacional is located at Francisco Sosa 383, Col. Barrio de Santa Catarina, Del. Coyoac·n, Mexico City. The first presentation will begin promptly at 9 a.m., Monday, November 9.
