Digital audiovisual files are large, complex, and difficult to manage. Performing quality control and validation tasks on these files, generally composed of multiple file types, is inherently more difficult than print- or image-based files. This workshop will cover resources and open source software for born-digital and digitized audiovisual, and provide an understanding of their role in processing workflows.

This course was initially designed for the Centre national de l'audiovisuel Luxembourg and now supports a wide range of professionals who work on or are planning to work with audiovisual materials in the context of large-scale digitization and preservation efforts. These include preservation professionals; digital specialists; database administrators; program managers and directors; archivists, curators, librarians, and researchers.
This workshop requires each participant to bring their own laptop so everyone can get the most out of their time. Loaner laptops will not be available. This course will cover the following tools: MediaConch, QCTools, RAWcooked. Please do your best to install your laptop with the MediaConch and QCTools tools beforehand. We will do our best to help demonstrate tools for those who will not have configured laptops. We will also focus primarily on GUI (graphical user interface) versions of software, when possible. The CLI would require an intermediate level of understanding and experience with basic unix as a prerequisite. A CLI background is not a prerequisite to the workshop.
