Take a tour of DAMsmart's audiovisual preservation and digitisation facility!

About this Event

We are pleased to invite conference delegates to visit with the team at DAMsmart in Mitchell to experience their audiovisual preservation and digitisation facility. DAMsmart works with a broad range of Australian and international collection owners to professionally and safely digitise videotape, film and audio formats. This visit to DAMsmart will give attendees the chance to take a guided walk-through the purpose-built facility and learn about their approaches to AV digitisation, including collection control and management, conservation, digitisation (audio, film, video) and data management.

DAMsmart has worked across a huge range of archives, including highly valuable collections, such as the Nelson Mandela Foundation’s archive, unique artwork collections such as those held by the Art Gallery of NSW, through to mass migration projects, that have seen DAMsmart digitise over 42,000 hours for SBS. This tour will offer delegates a unique insight into the complex world of audiovisual digitisation and preservation.
