The first phase of SCALA, the pilot project on sustainable storage for digital private law archives, is complete. To conclude the project and create a starting point for the next phase, the AIDA network (the nine institutions behind SCALA) organised a focus day on 26 April to share ideas about archiving and preserving born-digital archives and collections. Here is the report.
We receive more and more helpdesk requests in our virtual letterbox every year. In 2020, we counted almost 300 requests for advice from over 150 different people and organisations.

Results FFv1 and MKV study

In 2013, meemoo chose MXF as a container and JPEG2000 as an encoding for our archive masters, together with content partners from the heritage sector. The technological development of audiovisual codecs does not stand still and the development and possible standardisation of FFv1 and MKV are interesting evolutions. In this blogpost we explain the results of an exploratory study about MKV and FFv1 which meemoo carried out in the margins of the Preforma project together with Packed vzw and Media Area.
