Hellenic Radio & Television digitizes historic archives

Hellenic Radio & Television, Greece's public broadcaster, is working with Pierides TechnoSystems to digitize and manage all of its historically significant video content, currently stored in a variety of formats, including legacy analog formats.

To accomplish this, ERT is installing an Omneon Spectrum media server system alongside a new Dalet media asset management system for ingest, playout and online storage.

Today, ERT owns a substantial film archive from the first decade of public television — which includes more than 40,000 hours of material on 35mm film and 210,000 hours on 16mm film — along with Greek and international news bulletins, as well as documentaries from that era. The new archive system will incorporate material preserved on 1in and 2in open-reel tape, U-matic videocassettes, 16mm and 35mm film, and also newer formats such as Betacam SP and DVCPRO.
