EUscreen project

With the support of FIAT/IFTA, the European Broadcasting Union and the EDL Foundation, the EUscreen Best Practice Network aims to provide access to a highly interoperable digitized collection of television material.
Although content is now being digitized and some of it is available online, access to audiovisual archives, television in particular, remains fractured and scattered. This is due to the lack of interoperability, the non-existence of proven scenarios for the use of audiovisual material, the complexity of rights issues and the lack of contextual information.
