PP_WP4_ID4.0.2c_Interface specification of vocabulary alignment and annotation services

We describe the methods that are explored to improve the quality of the user-generated metadata in preparation of the second pilot of the Waisda? tagging game. The tools are made available within the YAZ (Your Annotation Zone) toolkit. We describe how the data is modelled, including a way to capture the provenance information, and describe the web service to export an RDF graph.

PP_WP4_ ID4.0.2a Rights Metadata APIs

Description: This deliverable provides the definitions of interfaces for a set of tools and services working with information on exploitation Rights of audiovisual assets, as resulting from the definition of the Common Rights Ontology. First prototype versions of the tools are also part of the deliverable. The tools and services are grouped within two sets one of which has to be deployed within the archive services of the PrestoPRIME Preservation Platform while the other one, named RightsDraw, is conceived for being deployed externally, offering functionalities to Producers and Consumers.

D7.1.5 Audiovisual Digital Preservation Status Report 3

Description :The current status of audiovisual preservation as of December 2011 is described. This 2011 report continues the series of technological ‘brief encounters’, lists European developments in 2011 and has a major section on the significance of the fact that audio and video content is, at heart, a signal – and hence fundamentally different from text and general digital data.

D2.1.2 Tools for modelling and simulating migration-based preservation

Description :These tools aim at modelling and simulating the costs and risks of using IT storage systems for the long-term archiving of file-based AV assets. The tools include a model of storage costs, the ingest and access of files, the possibility of data corruption and loss from a range of mechanisms, and the impact of having limited resources with which to fulfil access requests and preservation actions.

ID3.4.1 Service Level Agreements for Audiovisual Preservation Services

Description : This document outlines a framework for monitoring and managing services with a service level agreements (SLA) and proposes a complete list of terms suitable for inclusion in the SLA for a preservation service provider. Modelling techniques for service capacity management are discussed and the results of a survey investigating trust issues is presented. Standards and reference models for computer readable SLAs such as WSAgreement are compared and the real world experience of managing the relationship between a preservation service provider and their client is documented.

ID3.3.1 Media formats, identification methods and implementations for multivalent preservation

Description : The objective of this report is to provide guidance on the range and nature of problems in audiovisual digital preservation, and the potential for Multivalent and iRODS technologies to address them. We illustrate how this is the most reliable method, when compared with other alternatives such as file conversions and creating wrappers/bindings to native libraries.

ID3.2.1 : Threats to data integrity from use of large-scale data management environments

Description : Maintaining data integrity when using IT infrastructure for the long-term storage of audiovisual files is a major challenge. This report investigates the threats to files from the use of mass storage technologies (e.g. hard drives in servers and data tapes in robots); how can file corruption can be identified; and how the risk of loss be can assessed.

ID3.1.1 Specification and Design of a Preservation Environment for Audiovisual Content

Description : This report presents the specifications and designs for a framework for a long term preservation system for audiovisual content using migration, based on the OAIS reference model, taking into account the research done for audiovisual needs and also ExLibris’ experience in this area. Highlights of the research include well known standards such as OAIS, PREMIS, & METS as well as a review of tools for metadata extraction and file identification. A major emphasis was placed on designing the system with the ability to integrate the tools that will be developed within the scope of the PrestoPrime project.
