Digitizing CBC's History Before It is Too Late

Postby jon » Thu May 18, 2017 4:20 pm

CBC/Radio-Canada will begin mass digitization of the public broadcaster’s audiovisual archive collection, starting in winter 2018. CBC will digitise 720,000 physical media assets (audio and video) while Radio-Canada will digitise more than 650,000 assets that include audio, video and film. In addition to making the material more accessible, the CBC says the move is necessary to address the deterioration of physical recording media, equipment obsolescence and the increasing cost to production staff and media librarians of maintaining playback devices. At least 20 new positions will be created internally to support the project which will take at least five years.

Let's hope this also includes the station IDs each station (such as CBUT, etc.) used in the past, like these:
