An Atlas of Audio-Visual Artifacts

Big thanks to Matt S. for a heads-up on the new-to-me A/V Artifact Atlas (which is set up as a wiki.) Multimedia archivists, I think you’ll dig this. From the about page: “The AV Artifact Atlas is for use in the identification and definition of the technical issues and anomalies that can afflict audio and video signals. The goal of AVAA is to advance the audiovisual archiving field generally by strengthening the practice of reformatting archival media content. Archivists, curators, librarians, conservators, digitization service providers — plus all the users of cultural heritage content — benefit from the use of a common vocabulary, with supporting examples, when discussing such issues with one another.” In addition to the problems, possible remedies for the problems are also mentioned.
