AV in general


Wideo is an online platform providing the users with a way to create, edit and share their videos for free. The service is web-based so the only requirement is a browser. Users can choose (or upload) the images, fonts, animations, videos and audios. By uploading one’s own audio it is possible to make videos with voiceover explanations.
The system is currently in Beta version.

PrestoSpace - Digital Preservation of audio/visual material

PrestoSpace (http://www.prestospace.org/project/index.en.html) is an EU project which aims to enable any European archive owner, from small collections to the largest, to manage an autonomous and realistic patrimonial policy, including preservation and exploitation of digital assets, in order to bring together industry, research institutes and stakeholders at European level to provide products and services for bringing effective automated preservation and access to Europe’s diverse audiovisual collections.

The outcome of the project is "Digital Preservation of audio/visual material", a website for archive owners, academics and the public alike, which provides a first point-of-call for information on the migration and digital preservation of audio/visual works. The site is a repository of the information and experience gained in the PrestoSpace project. You can find information ranging from the tutorial to the academic on planning and executing a digital preservation project and the technologies and processes involved. You will also find training videos, management tools and links to online resources and events in the field of digital preservation.

"A virtual home for science communicators

Launched in the spring of 2005, AthenaWeb is a video portal and workspace for European audiovisual communication professionals in the areas of science and scientific information. Contributors and users of the service include institutions, universities, labs, corporations, not-for-profit organisations, and of course the television and film industry (broadcasters, journalists, documentary makers, producers, people who commission TV programming, etc.).

AthenaWeb is 100% backed by the European Commission’s Research Directorate-General and is run by the science communications agency LAB TO MEDIA."

Editorial note 3 August 2011: Athenaweb seized its functions from 31 July 2011 onwards, the website is currently still accessible, but we cannot predict for how long. It is unsure at this point what will happen to the resources.
