NOA at IASA 2023
...to highlight the need for preserving metadata in audio archiving projects.
AV digitizing and archiving specialist NOA GmbH will participate in the 54th International Association of Sound and Audiovisual Archives (IASA) and International Council for Traditional Music (ICTM) conference that takes place Sept 11–15 at the University in Istanbul.
Overlapping with IASA conference, NOA will also be present at IBC in Amsterdam from September 15-18.
The hybrid event will combine in-person with online sessions streamed live to registered participants via Zoom and will feature papers, posters, panel discussions, keynotes, exhibits, and more.
At the gathering, NOA will address attendees with the paper, “Synchronous and Asynchronous Collection, Manipulation and Preservation of Metadata in Audio Archiving Projects.”
During its presentation on Sept. 12 at 2.00 p.m. (700 a.m. EDT, 1.00 p.m. CET), NOA will take a deep dive into the importance of the vast number of information-rich metadata that is generated and collected during the process of transitioning from physical to digital sound documents, and how this metadata can provide essential details about each sound document in question.
NOA will provide an overview of the various sources, types, methods of collection and manipulation, and eventual fates of the various forms of metadata. The company will place special focus on the significant difference between ‘synchronous’ and ‘asynchronous’ processes when archiving and annotating media content.
“The topic of our paper is a response to the need for preserving metadata in audio archiving projects. It results from both knowledge and expertise NOA has developed in years dedicated to find and finetune the technology supporting archive management. In addition to that we are honored to sponsor this event as a sign of commitment to the industry and the community.”
explains Jean-Christophe Kummer, managing partner of NOA.
