Sustainable digitisation and preservation of audiovisual material

Knowyourcarrier.com is an initiative of VIAA, or the Flemish Institute for Archiving, together with PACKED. VIAA was founded by the Flemish government at the end of 2012. We digitise and archive Flemish audiovisual material from analogue and digital carriers such as audio cassettes, VHS and film rolls. This material is preserved sustainably and made accessible as widely as possible. The image and sound under our care, flows from Flemish heritage institutions, archives, museums and the media sector: our content partners.

In the past five years, we gathered knowledge and expertise during our digitisation and archiving projects. We would love to share this knowledge with you. Moreover, we regularly received questions from content partners and individuals in the past, for which we can now provide straightforward answers.
