Digitising the Archive

PAW Media is working through an ongoing digitisation process for its archive in order to strengthen the collection’s longevity and to enable better cataloguing and user access over a large RAID network stored in the video room.

Simon Japangardi Fisher has been focusing on digitising selected VHS titles onto our RAID storage system and has so far completed over 100 videos. Some of these video files are included in the weekly Community TV playlist. Many photographic prints have also been scanned at high resolution and stored digitally. PAW Media aims to continue to upgrade its digitising process to meet best practice in terms of preserving this significant collection.
