FRAME Tech 2021

Frame Tech training program

After a single FRAME 2020 session dedicated to the management of audiovisual archives under exceptional circumstances and a first FRAME Access session in June 2021, the FRAME Tech 2021 training course is now also adapting to the sanitary context. For the first time, it will be held online as a 6 half-days training, from 17 to 24 November.

Every year, new techniques and technologies emerge in the field of audiovisual archiving, and new issues and challenges arise. For the 12th consecutive year, FRAME Tech will enable participants to improve their essential technical knowledge of audiovisual archives while addressing the most recent challenges:

  • How to technically take into account the new uses and the increasing number of audiovisual file formats?
  • What are the challenges for quality control in a context of massive digitisation and native digital production?
  • How to store and manage an ever-growing volume of data?
  • How Open Source tools can contribute to the sustainability of audiovisual collections?
  • What's new in image and sound digitisation and restoration?

Renowned professionals from various international institutions will answer these and many other questions through a variety of pedagogical methods: case studies, lectures, experience feedbacks, interactive workshops, etc.

Among FRAME Tech 2021 speakers:

Invited institution: RTS – Radio Television Suisse


In the FRAME Tech 2021 Programme

  • Technical workflow for archiving;
  • Digitisation and file formats
  • Define and choose a storage solution
  • Media Asset Management system: the right questions to consider

Beyond the programme, exchanges and professional networking, essential components of FRAME, will also be at the core of this session, with many opportunities for exchange and sharing of experience: question and answer sessions, sharing of resources, presentations of participants' institutions and infrastructures, dedicated time for interactions between participants to strengthen their links and their network, etc.

This will make this first FRAME Tech online session a real moment of exchange between professionals and an accelerator for the development of your skills and your projects.
