Brussels, Belgium—Memnon Archiving Services, the trusted partner for digital preservation, enrichment and accessibility of audiovisual and cultural archives, is showcasing its digitisation and restoration service offering at next month’s NAB 2015. The company is seeking to help broadcasters, national institutions, content owners and archivists understand the real threats to their valuable material, particularly as audio and video recording formats become obsolete and their players no longer supported.
According to a study by UNESCO, over 200 million hours of audiovisual programmes are in immediate danger. Memnon is already working with many of the world’s leading broadcasters and national institutions to preserve the assets in an endeavour to stem the flow. As well as the loss of revenues this loss implies, it also represents a large part of recent cultural history.
