WGBH Open Source Digital Asset Management System for Media Preservation

The development of a comprehensive, open-source digital asset management system for moving image and audio humanities collections.

This project will build and implement an open source digital media preservation and DAM system, focused primarily on the needs of public media stations but relevant and applicable to all cultural institutions with moving image and audio materials. We will face the challenge of handling both large and small media files in several formats. Based on the Hydra technology stack, including the Fedora repository and the Blacklight discovery interface, it will reflect TRAC trusted repository guidelines. We will use and develop open code that will be publicly shared, clearly research and document implementation needs, implement the open source solution as a new model of digital asset management at WGBH, and test the ease of implementation at two partner public media organizations – South Carolina Educational Television Network (SCETV) and Public Radio International (PRI).
