On World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, the DPC is pleased to announce the launch of "Pragmatic Audiovisual Preservation"  by Ashley Blewer for member preview.

The preservation of audiovisual materials remains a challenging topic. Moving beyond the complexity of audiovisual materials and the urgency around digitization, concepts related to significant technical characteristics and the impact each has on digital audiovisual files can be daunting.

This report therefore aims to provide easily digestible guidance for practitioners with a basic knowledge of digital preservation concepts and archival practices but without expertise in audiovisual materials. It does this by providing a foundation in the basics of audiovisual preservation and practical steps on taking forward the preservation of these materials in typical organisational settings. It delivers guidelines to moving image and sound preservation for organizations of all sizes, featuring case studies and scenarios from a wide range of institutions.

This report will be made publicly available in January 2021.
