The Principality of Monaco
Renews its Audiovisual Heritage with EVS’ MediArchive Director
Paris, 7 February
2012 – The Audiovisual Archives of the Principality of Monaco has selected MediArchive
Director, EVS’ asset management solution, for the digitisation and
showcasing of up to 8,000 hours of video archives. Created in 1997, the
Audiovisual Archives of the Principality of Monaco collects and preserves
media content relating to the Principality and its heritage. In doing so it
has embarked on a significant media digitisation project, which has lead to
the request for an asset management solution that not only increases the
speed and flexibility of the referencing, browsing and sharing of digital
media processes, but also integrates seamlessly with the existing database
and third-party systems.
After reviewing several offers, the Audiovisual Archives of Monaco has
opted for MediArchive Director. The EVS solution will allow the archivists
to oversee and manage the entire ingest process, including the ingestion
and digitisation of up to 6,000 hours of video content from multiple
sources as well as the digitisation of over 2,000 hours of audio material
via a NOA Ingest Line system. The media files will be stored on LTO tapes
via a Spectra Logic robot controlled by XenData.
Due to the MediArchive Director’s API,
instant access to media via the browser and “aapmflow” database developed
by Mixio is made possible. As a result, operators will be able to select
and retrieve media content in a flash due to the system’s speed. The EVS
solution will also handle the distribution process, as the MediArchive
Director allows users to generate duplicates in multiple formats and
deliver media via multiple platforms.
Vincent Vatrican Director of the Audiovisual Archives of the Principality
of Monaco comments: “With the MediArchive Director, all steps of the
archiving process, from digitisation to distribution, are continuously
monitored and made simple with a central interface. The system’s flexibility
and ability to control third-party solutions is also an asset for this
ambitious project, which is vital for the Principality’s audiovisual
