Title 64333 Digital Radio Archive Management System Client Website 

The minimum requirements for a successful pilot will be to deliver a capture and management solution for AV broadcast media, which will enable the organisation to record off-air between 12 and 18 hours per channel, per day, from a combination of national and local radio stations from across UK (up to 300,000 hours per year); to preserve these recordings in the organisation's Digital Library System; and to make them accessible (with published and derived metadata) through the organisation access systems. To address this situation the organisation plans to create a digital radio archive, based on off-air recording, which will preserve a proportion of ongoing UK radio output (emphasising speech-based content), and make this available for research. The first step is to build a pilot radio archive over a period of two years, covering up to 50 stations from across the UK, to be developed thereafter into a full service. The pilot will test technologies, scalability, sustainability, research use and integration with Library systems.
